F. G. Dais & Son, -ttho are lo- 
cated northwest of town, farm on 
a fairly large scale and poultry, 
is only one department, but it is a 
mighty important and profitable 
department, bringing them a re- 
turn this year of at least $1,200. 
The Dols specialize in White Hol- 
land turkeys and Black Minorca 
chickens and have gained considS 
erable of a reputation for the 
quality, of their stock. Last win-, 
ter they kept ; nine . turkey hens 
and one torn, : from which they 
raised 150 turkeys this season. 
They received in the neighbor- 
hood of $500 for market turkeys 
and estimate that they will re- 
ceive another '$200 from the sale 
of breeding stock. Their returns 
from chickens are estimated at 
$600. They have a very fine dis- 
play at the Poultry show, one of 
their yearling toms weighing 31 
pounds. Last year their Black 
Minorca eggs took -first prize at 
the, Madison Square Garden 
shows at New York.

COMING FRIDAY 



Whippets Lose Game to Be- 

midji by Only Three 

Points. 



Basketball fans are anticipating 
with pleasure the contest between the 
Lincoln High School Whippets and the 
strong Fosston team which is to take 
place on the auditorium floor Friday 
night, January 7, the game to be call- 
ed at 8 oclock. 

Fosston is reputed to have develop- 
ed repeatedly some of the fastest high 
school teams in northern Minnesota 
and this year also boasts of another 
team of stars. The fact that the local 
Whippets hve demonstrted their abili- 
ty as a team of "stars" indicates that 
the game Friday night will be a high- 
ly interesting one. An admission fee 
of 15 cents and 35 cents will he charg- 
ed- , , 

A large crowd of fans turned out 
last Thursday evening and saw the 
locals nosed put by the powerful Be- 
midji quint, 19 to 22. The game waS 
fast and interesting throughout but as 
usual- the Whippets were somewhat 
weak in making successful a fair per- 
centage of the number of attempts 
they had at the loop. Joe Holte acted 
as referee. , . 



Charles Leonard Hanson. 

Charles Leonard Hanson,- infant son 
of Mr. and Mrs. Leonar^Hanson, died 
Monday morning. Short funeral ser- 
vices were held at the home yesterday 
afternoon at 3 o'clock, Bev. : >Ed. H. 
Lorenz officiating, and interment was 
made in Greenwood cemetery..

. The tenth annual exhibition, of the 
Pennington County Poultry Associa- 
tion which opened Tuesday morning, 
is now well under way. The first day 
was spent in receiving- entries and ar- 
ranging the exhibits, all things' being 
made in readiness for the - judging 
which took place today. The awards 
will be announced tomorrow morning 
and the ribbons placed and .it is ex- 
pected that all previous attendance 
records will be broken by tomorrow's 
crowds. 

The show, which is a marked suc- 
cess from every standpoint; is by far 
the greatest exposition of this kind 
ever staged in this city, and, accord- 
ing to N.- C. Nierengarten, official 
judge, is decidedly one of the out- , 
standing poultry shows of the north- 
west. ' "There is not a turkey show in 
Minnesota that will come up to your 
display here either from the stand- 
point of quality or quantity", Mr. 
Nierengarten told a Tribune reporter 
this morning in discus^ingthe show. 
"It is ah unusually fine gfoiip of ex- 
hibits, especially when you consider 
that they are local birds". ; " x 

The officers and directors of the 
association are pleased with the in- 
terest that has been taken by local 
exhibitors ■ and visitors. "Never . in 
any previous show has there been 
such exceptional quality of birds ex- 
hifiited,'' said- Dave Gustafson, presi- 
dent of the Association. "Our^ show 
this year has not one/ poor auality 
bird. The exceptionally ■ well balanc- 
ed show of almost equal number of 
birds in r- 11 the leading breeds -is an 
advantage over most poultry shows,

Official Paper 
City of Thief Elver Falls 



BANKING LA fVS 
Jim Morrison of the Morris Tri- 
bune makes a sensible suggestion in 
regard to banking laws. It is well to 
remember, when . we consider this 
question, that the water which has al- 



eously indignant over a condition 
which should never have been permit- 
ted to develop, but that condition was 
a development of many years and not 
a growth of ' d short period. The 
problem which confronts our legis- 
lators today is not one of remedying 
past blunders but of inaugurating a 
system which will insure the public 
against a repetition of those blunders 
in the future. There is no need for 
hasty legislation. The danger in haste 
in a matter of this kind is that pas- 
sion and prejudice will exert an un- 
due influence. On the other hand 
action should not be delayed to such 
an extent that the need for action will 
be forgotten. The legislature will do 
well to follow Mr. Morrison's advice 
and referjthe problem to a competant 
commission authorized to investigate 
the situation thoroughly and instruct- 
ed to bring back definite recommend- 
.ations. Mf. Morrison says, 

"There is sure to be a flood of 
banking bills introduced at the com- 
ing session of the legislature, yet 
about the wisest thing that the leg- 
islature could do would be to appoint 
an interim commission to draft an en- 
tirely new banking code for submis- 
sion to the following legislature/ It 
is perfectly apparent that the situa- 
tion requires a much more thoro study 
than can be given it in a half a dozen 
.or so committee meetings. For one 
thing, the subject of bank capitaliza- 
tion requires .exhaustive study and 
capital requirements should be heavy 
enough to reduce the outlandish and 
unhealthy profits of former days, 
while insuring greater stability in 
times of stress. Commissioner Veigel, 
in a recent statement is today urging 



heavier capital' requirements, but he 
doesn't talk half strong enough. Fur-j te _ 
thermore, he rather takes pride in* 
th8"fact that no new charters are be- 
irfg granted. This is by authority of 
a law that; gives the banking depart- 
ment discretion In -the- granting of 
charters, ^hjch-is all wrong, and will 
lead to a scandal some day. The 
capital requirements of a bank should 
be heavy enough so that the number 
of banks in a community would be 
automatically limited to the business 
needs of the community. For anoth- 
er thing, there should be. an entire 
segregation of the investment funds 
and tie commercial funds / an a b^nk, 
and this whole proposition would re- 
quire a great deal of study. " Minne- 
sota has the soundest banks today 
that it ever had in its history, but 
they are still subjectrto the caprices 
of public confidence. A banking code 
eould be drafted which would make 
the. banks practically scare proof." 



NOT PITILESS 
, . . , "The rural press of Minnesota can 

ready gone over the dam cannot be ^ a substantial contribution to the 
brought back. The pubhc is right- k of ^ ■ ^ b ; ^ 

publicity m all criminal matters, 
says an exchange. Such council is 
ill-advised. "Pitiless" is the .wrong 
word: , Let's not lean over backwards 
in this campaign against crime to such 
an extentVthat we lose our balance. 
There is a, vast difference between 
"pity" and "sob-sister-sehtimental- 
ism." There are, and always will be, 
a few law breakers who deserve 
"pity'. There is, not yet such an 
abundance of mercy in this world that 
we must rule.it out of our news- 



papers. 

THAT WHICH GLITTERS 
A tradejjournal complains that the 
"blue-sky"- laws of the country are 
too rigid, and that they interfere 
with the development of many wor- 
thy mining operations. While we are 
not sufficiently familiar with, mining 
operations io expres an. opinion on the 
subject, we do know that the present 
"blue sky" laws do not keep thou- 
sands of "suckers" from contributing 
millions .of dollars to crodked promo- 
ters each year. It is our impression 
that the "blue sky" laws are still a 
trifle cloudy. 

One trouble with "blue sky" laws 
is that people get the impression the 
law protects them from frauds, and 
therefore take for granted that all 
proposition; are necessarily honest. An 
old timer once told us, "A man aint 
got no kick comin' when he gets bit 
by a rattlesnake, but if he should get 
poisoned bj a wood dove he'd have a 
fair right to be put, out." And na- 



ture doesn't provide crooked promo- 
ters Iwith rattles. ■ They coo v like 
doves, ' j 

It js doubtful,' of : course, that any 
system of laws will: ever be written 
suffitiently fool-proof toy make com- 
mon sense an unnecessary quality; An 
investment In the other fellow's pri* 
position is really nothing*mofe than 
a bet on his ability and honesty, and 
if we know nothing of his ability or 
honesty, common sense and ordinary 
prudence advise against betting. 
Speculation is gambling and if a per- 
son must gamble there are many far 
more ^pleasant ways of losing money 
than by turning it over in a lump 
sum to the first stranger who insists 
on making us rich. Very little of 
that which glitters is gold. ! • i 



! COUNTY FJIRS. j 
"What, is going to happen to coun- 
ty fairs?", is a question being asked 
in many parts of. the state. The 
Montevideo' News makes tha follow- 
ing comment on the problem'. 

. "At' its next meeting of the state 
association of "county fairs may well 
consider what the future holds for this 
type-of exposition^,. From, this body 
should come recommendations of!a 
policyl to be followed in the state. Fin- 
ancial troubles of more than, one coun- 
ty fair association justify the feeling 
that something be done. In Meeker 
county Dassel is ready to give up the 
fair after having operated it for sev- 
eral years, the while a deficit, grew 
from nothing to $11,780. In Beltra- 
mi, county the deficit is 528,000 and 
members of the board., of directors 
have proposed that the fair 
continued^ . ■ : .C, 

■"It has been suggested that region- 
al fairs,, one for several counties, take 
the place of the more than 87 county 
fairs. | This idea points to a sensible 
solution, but at once, runs up against 
the home pride of every city now the 
seat of a county fair. Each town 
wants; to haye one of !the regional 
fairs. I Perhaps the regional fair will 
not cpine, not by enactment of the leg- 
islature but by the survival of. the 
fittest.; Fairs fifty miles apart are 
competitors now, a condition which 
did not exist before the . day of the 
automobile and good roads." 

Pennington County is one of the 
few counties in the state that can 
boast of a good, high grade, financial- 
ly solvent fair. The fair manage- 
ment is tot be commended for its abil- 
ity ~to :maintain a high standard com- 
munity exposition - and operate it, 
through these years of depression, 
without a loss. The process of elimi- 
nation is already reducing the nutm 
ber of fairs in this section of the 



state. Polk county gave lip the ghost 
a few years ago and Beltrami is slip- 
ping — if it hasn't', already slipped. 
Considering the splendjd condition of 
the local association financially; the 
reputation of the- local fair thruout 
this section of tW state, and the ad- 
vantageous geographical location of 
Thief River Falls with its - gravel 
roads and railroad facilities, there is 
good reason to believe that the Pen- 
nington county fair will gradually de- 
velop into the regional fairfdr north- 
western Minnesota, 



OUR BANKS. . 

The_banks of this city present- the 
statements of their condition in this 
issue of the Tribune. They are in- 
teresting in several respects. The 
outstanding feature of the statements, 
however, is the huge, liquid reserve 
maintained by eacj) institution. In 
addition to a' large amount of cash 
the banks are maintaining a . second- 
ary reserve-of bonds which can be con- 
verted into cash in a few hours. One- 
half of their assets are in cash or rep- 
resent the equivalent of cash. 

In some respects it is a splendid 
thing that our banks are able to keep 
their assets in this liquid condition. 
They are prepared to meet even an 
unreasonable demand by the deposi- 
tors. But considering this condition 
from a practical standpoint, iris un- 
fortunate that the banks must keep so 
large' a portion of their money tied up 
mi>»i' n tms form of security. Instead, of 
be/ dis- a few hundred thousand of this com- 
munity's dollars being invested in 
outside communities, it should be in- 
vested right here at home, promoting 
the best interests of our farmers and 
business ;men. 

It will probably take some time be- 
fore this condition can be remedied. 
The confidence of the public will re-, 
turn slowly, and until, it/ does return 
the banks must keep themselves in a 
position to meet sudden demands. 
Our banks will be able to render their 
full measure of community service 
again only when public confidence has 
been restored. Those who, by ill-ad- 
vised criticism or gossip, delay the re- 
turn of that confidence, injure not on- 
ly the banks themselves but the entire 
community.

Stock is Remanded 

For Another Trial 



(Bemidji Sentinel) 
The state supreme court has re- 
manded for another trial the case of 
William Stock, former resident of Be- 
midji, who is represented by Attorney 
C. L. Pegelow of this city. The ap- 
peal to the /state court came/*after 
Stock had been sentenced as/the re- 
sult! of the second trial of ttie case, 
which was heard in Pennington coun- 
ty district court at Thief ffifcer Falls. 
The supreme court decision states that 
the indictment is construed as charg- 
ing the defendant with selling intoxi- 
cating liquor to a minor. 

Laws 1911, c,*290 prohibits the gift 
of intoxicating liquor to a minor for 
consumption ai~a> beverage and the 
statute cannot'be evaded by snowing 
that the gift was made in a spirit of 
hospitality or good fellowship, the 
decision states, adding that the of- 
fense proved in this case is held to be 
only a gross -misdemeanor. The con- 
tention of the supreme court decision 
is that Stck has been sentenced for 



an offense much- more serious than 
that -of which he was convicted.

Lambert's Loafers Bowl 
'■ Oen Merc Aggregation 



Although bowling has been! going 
on for time in the Elks alleys, the 
season did riot .officially operi untU 
last Wednesday night when jMayor 
_ Prichard, after appropriate remarks, 
rolled the first ball down the alley just 
before the newly organized: team 
known' as Lambert's Loafers removed 
coats in preparation for the clash with 
the Oen Mercantile five captained by 
Haaken Olson. Mr. Lamabert was 
there in person and took active charge 
of his loafers, Joe La Boe, Roy Belch- 
er, Francis Burns and George. Mtostue. 
"You're feeble minded," said one of 
Lambert's men to a member of the 
opposing team when the arguments 
were waxing hot over the matter of 
sliding over the foul line. The pres- 
piration stood out in large beads on 
Haakon Olson's frehead as he heated- 
ly replied, "Well, anyway, if I' am I 
can't help it, but I'd a lot rather be 
that way than a loafer." As' he 
spoke, he rolled the "oatmeal", ten 
■■-" huge pins tumbled and the argument 
^ ceased. Mr. Lambert stated itoday 
^ **that anyone wishing to join his team 

.must loaf around thfl drug store aji

At any rate the State Highway de-

available. A bulletin received by the 
Tribune states that the contracts let 
during the fall for work to be com- 
pleted in 1927 call for expenditures of 
about $5,000,000. This includes 93 
miles of paving, 825 miles of grading, 
148 miles of gravel s urfacing and 754 1 
linear feet of new bridges. Plans are 
being prepared for about 140 miles of 
additional grading, for which it is ex- . 
pected that bids will be asked in the 
■spring or early summer. This- will 
require an additional $l,600i000. Some 
of the mileage being graded is slated 
for paving in 1928, but all the other 
grading which is completed in time 
will be gravel surfaced in the fall. 
This will take another million, mak- 
ing the total construction program 
$7,500,000 as against $9,000,000 for 
1926. 



If the housewives in the United

COUNCIL TAKES 
ACTION ON DAM 
JOB AND PAVING 



Plans and Specifications Are 
Ordered for New Pow- 
er Project 



Proposed Paving Here May 
Be Completed This 

Year. / 



The proposed improvements; to the 
municipal dam and water power plant 
and the additional paving on Sixth 
street and Riverside avenue occupied 
most of the time of the city council 
at the regular meeting last night, and 
action was \taken by this . body that 
practically assures the ^completion of 
these improvements thi s year. The 
city clerk and mayor were authorized 
to enter into a contract with the Jac- 
ohson Engineering Company of Min- 
neapolis to prepare plans and*specifi- 
cations for the improvement of the 
dam at an estimated cost ofj,^75,000 
to $80,000 bids on the worfcH.'to be 
opened at a special meeting of -the 
council on Feb. 1. 

Proposals were received from W. 
B. Stevenson of Fargo i and -j E. G. 
Briggs of St. Paul whereby each 
sought a contract for the preparation 
of plans and specifications of the pav- 
ing on the two above 
streets, petitions for which were filed 
with the city council soine time ago. 
The matter of entering- into such a 
contract will be concluded this eve- 
ning when the council reconvenes at 
7 o'clock, adjournment having been 
-taken, at one o'clock this morning af- 
ter a lengthy and busy session . 

Initial steps toward entering into 
a contract with the Jacobson En- 
gineering company of Minneapolis 
were\ taken last Thursday at a speci- 
al meeting when the council declared 
the contract made with Ralph D. 
Thomas, by a previous ; city council, 
concluded when he accepted a check 
sent him about three months ago as 
payment in full for services. Im- 
mediately after the meeting last week 
■word to that effect was sent the Jac- 
obson Engineering company of the 
desires of th ecouncil to go ahead with 
-the improvement of the dam along 
lines suggested by the company, and 
a representative arrived; Monday and 
went over the ground thoroughly with 
the council and the superintendent of 
•light and power previously to 1 ast 
night's meeting* 

- The tentative plans call for the 
erection of a new power house im- 
mediately to the west of the present 
generating plant at the dam; the 
placing of large flood gates where the 
present flume is located;! the practical 
removal of the old portion of the dam

the score stood 17 to 17. , 

Two extra periods of three minutes 
each were played, each team sinking 
the leather sphere for a field goal the 
first period and the locals getting one 
the final period making the .score 19 
to 21. 

A very noticeable thing was the 
poor ^shooting on the part of the 
Whippets. They seemed to have 
everything their own way so far as 
getting the ball and working it down 
the .floor to their basket, -but they 
simply could not hit the loop. Records 
of the game showed that Thief River 
players had 74 attempts at the basket

of T. R. Falls and L Lien 

of Goodridge. 



Winners in the tenth annual Pen- 
nington County Poultry .show which 
was held hi this city January 4, 5,-6, 
and 7, are announced this week by 
J. J. McCann, secretary, the complete 
list of which~-appears below. The 
show was by far the greatest exhibi- 
tion of this kind ever staged in the 
city and was acclaimed by N. C. 
Neierengarten; official judge, as one 
of the leading poultry shows in the 
Northwest The turkey show, he -said, 
is the best in the state both from the 
standpoint of quality and quantity. 

Dave Gustafson, president of the 
Association, has expressed himself as 
being exceptionally well^ pleased at 
the manner in which the farmers re- 
sponded to -the request of placing 
their birds on exhibition. . 

O. K. Ose, Thief River Falls, won 
the sweepstakes for the best male and 
the best female turkey in the show. 
Irwin lien of Goodridge, who showed 
this year for the first time, won the 
sweepstakes for the best male and 
best female chicken in the entire 
-show. Each will receive two large, 
valuable loving cups and a score of 
other specials offered by the mer- 
chants of Thief River Falls and St.

plans, which would probably mean 
i development of close to 650 horsepow- 
er at times, or more than double 
the present capacity! The new types 
of wheels would be installed in the 
generating house, one a 30 inch wheel 
generating 250 horsepower, and the 
other a 39 inch wheel, generating 480 
horsepower. Either could be run to 
Jnll capacity, or both, or the smaller 
one to full and the larger one to more 
"than half, thereby securing the maxi- 
mum of efficiency. 

The work could be started immedi- 
ately after the letting of the contract, 
if tie cost thereof is not heyond pres- 
ent calculations, and the new power 
house be completed before any of the 
other work is started. After the pow- 
er house is ready the retaining wall 
along the shore would be inrilt, and 
then the water let out of the dam and 
a coffer dam build across the new 
channel for the water thereby per- 
-- mitting the installation ; of the pro- 
posed gates for flood times and the 
lemoval of the top part of the old 
dam. The old. power house after- 
wards could be used for ;storage pur- 
poses. .

Vernon Copp, young farmer and 
dairymen, residing about five miles 
northwest of Thief Hiver Palls, sus- 
tained seven fractured ribs and many, 
bruises when he was attacked last 
Thursday forenoon by a buIL Mr. Copp 
was attending to his herd of milch 
cows in the barn yard when the ani- 
mal broke loose from, a stall in the 
barn, smashed his way out of doors, 
and made a dash, for him. Previously 
the bull had never shown any symp- 
toms of ftnger^and had never been led 
by a stack. In trying to break away 
from him Mr.- Copp grabbed the ring 
in the animal's nose but was thrown 
to the ground and goared, first while 
he was not in deep snow where the 
injuries probably were sustained.

a barbed wire fence. Although badly 
injured Mx. Copp managed to. get up 
from the ground, climb a fence post 
and onto a Grab of a tree nearby. This 
move in his opinion undoubtedly sav- 
ed his life for no sooner had he 
reached the tree than the animal had 
broken through the fence and was af- 
ter him again. <

being warned by ler husband of the 
danger she immeliately called John

nicely. Five ribs \ "ere broken on one,

and can be sold in the fall. "Then.

Official Paper 
City of Thief River Palls 



WELCOME DAIRYMEN. 
Thief River Falls is host next 
week to the dairymen j of- the state 
when they entertain the members of 
the State and Red River Valley 
"Dairymen's associations! in their an- 
nual conventions. . Our city is hon- 
ored by the distinction conferred upon 
it by being selected, as the conven- 
tion city for these important organ- 
izations. The program; offered is of 
._ the highest type; Speakers of nation- 
al prominence will discuss problems 
of special interest to die farmers of 
this community. It will be well 
worth the time of every person in- 
terested in dairying to attend the ses- 
sions of this convention. 



"Loafing is getting so expensive 
that the only solution, isimore.work." 

A LESSON IN filJALITY. 

The outstanding feature of the 
poultry show was the turkey exhibit. 
It indicated not only the tremendous 
increase in' the numbers 'of these birds 
being raised in this community but 
also represented the high standard! of 
quality which the farmers of this com- 
munity have achieved. It is only a 
short time ago that the turkeys ship- 
ped from this. point were practically 
all "seconds" in quality. This year 
there were comparatively few "sec- 
onds" shipped from here and as a re- 
sult the receipts were generally very 
satisfactory. 

What the farmers of this com- 
munity have done in a short time in 
the development of high quality tur- 
keys, they are also doing in the de- 
velopment of other varieties of live 
stock. It will take longer for the re- 
sults of good breeding to be noticeable 
in other live stock than in poultry but 
the effect will be the same eventually. 
As with poultry, it will mean bigger 
receipts and bigger profits for our 
farmers. 



cal over; i period of years, it does not 
necessarily follow that it is the part 
of wisdom to make such expenditures. 
Mortgaging the future is sometimes 
necessary^ but.it should not be done 
unless it is necessary. When we con- 
sider the -wonderful progress that has 
been made during the past few years 
on a pay--as-you-go method of finance 
we are content with the prospects of 
such further improvement during the 
next few years as the present rate 
of taxation will permit. 



"Howltime does fly between seven 
and eight o'clock in the morning." 



"If you can't say no you can't ex- 
pect to' live within your income." 



BONDS FOR ROADS. 

Minnesota has an unusually fine 
system of roads, and considering the 
comparatively short period in which 
this condition has been reached, the 
Jesuits are really remarkable. One 
■outstanding feature of this' accom- 
plishment is the fact that there is 
practically universal satisfaction 
anwp.g the people of'the state with 
the results. And this satisfaction is 
well founded. The task of lifting 
Minnesota out of the mud was given 
to one man and this man, Charles 
Babcock, has justified the confidence 
placed in him. He has' proved him- 
self big enough for the big job. 

Mr. Babcock has outlined his plans 
for the future and is asking a greatly 
increased appropriation from the 
state to carry out those plans. He has 
figured out that the state will save 
money by hard-surfacing the heavy 
travelled highways of the state at 
• once .and paying for them over a 
period of years. In order to accom- 
plish this he asks that the license fee 
on cars and tax on gasoline be in- 
creased and that in addition to this 
the state borrow twenty million dol- 
1 lars during the next two years. This 
' would mean that during the next 
two years more than sixty million 
dollars would be spent on Minneso- 
ta's highways. 

Governor Ted Christianson, how- 
ever, opposes this proposition of the 
highway department, and the legis- 



. FORD'S FIFE-DAY- WEEK 
When; Henry Ford hasn't enough 
work to keep his factories busy six 
days a week he operates only five days 
a week. [This is a sensible thing to 
do. Henry, however,* insists on be- 
ing a super-man. He must have an 
altruistic 'motive for his actions, no 
matter how commonplace and sordid 
the actions may be". So when Henry 
sleeps late or rises early, raises or low- 
ers the price of cars, expresses an 
opinion on jazz music or fiddlers, or 
shuts down his factories one more 
day a week, his platoon of publicity 
men immediately broadcast to the 
world that a great reform has been 
effected and that the dawn of- the in- 
dustrial rhillenium is just around the 
corner. In this hum-drum adjust- 
ment of a manufacturer . who has 
spread himself out too thin they see 
the birth; of a great revolutionary 
economic; principle. 

It is a^plendid thing that Henry 
is in such a healthy financial condi- 
tion that he can pay his men six 
days wages for five days of work. 
We have, ho objection whatsoever 
to him doing this.- It is fine— noble 
— beautiful. But when he asserts 
that this is the proper arrangement 
and that if this program were gener- 
ally applied thruout all industry it 
would increase national prosperity by 
giving the common people more time 
to spend their money, we rise to move 
that -Mr. -Ford have his mind ex- 
amined. As one unit of that vast body 
called the common people we would 
like to impress upon Mr. Ford the 
fact that pur~difficulty is not in find- 
ing time t!o spend our money. What 
we need to be shown is how to in- 
crease our earning capacity in the 
first place ;and in the second place how 
to salt those earnings away after we 
get them. If Mr. Ford will reveal 
this secret to the masses we will bow 
down in abject humility before his 
master mind.

ORIGINALITY 

, (Imperial Type Magazine) 

If you ever expect to accomplish 
anything don't wait for inspiration or 
the creative impulse. 

Just start fumbling, and by chance 
you may make a. success. After you 
have achieved Success, you will know 
and your friends will acknowledge 
that you have creative intelligence. 
Until you've tried, neither you nor 
anyone else knows what's inside you. 

People wish to get into business. 
They think .they would like to write, 
to act, to sing, to do something out of 
the ordinary. 

The thing to do is start now. 

Take a; chance. Take the risk of 
making a fool ofyourselfr . 

The wise men~say "function makes 
faculty," which means that we learn 
by doing. ' 

The mark of every first-rate man 
is sufficient egotism to overcome the 
shyness that blocks self-expression. 
Most of us are so self-conscious that 
when we, step out of our own little 
corner we become as timid as mice, 
and as one writer ■ says, we behave 
like idiots. 

What we must learn, according to 
the psychologists, is that everyone else 
is a victim of the same timidity that 
thwarfjs us. A few have had'- the 



A COMMUNITY TEST 
(Swift County Monitor) 
At the close of the year, when busi- 

arf c^km^SW^rs^la TV* Cmsii t™. ta * ri 
gains, is it not a good time to tike 'tf^Sn^-^ mam " 
an inventory of ourselvesln relation an i. ser ™ 1 ?. dmDer - 
to what we have done for our com- 
munity? 

, It is so easy to critize others,, in- 
cluding the public officials as well as 
leaders in a non-official, yet highly 
important, phase of civic work. 
\Far be it from the editor of this 
paper to claim exemption from the 
test. Kach one of us should ask these 
self-directed questions, and profit by 
the astounding results shown up on the 
wring side— the red ink side— of the 
community ledger. Here is the test: 
During 1926 what have I done to 
help this city, my community? 

How many meetings in relation to 
civic problems have I attended? If 
my answer is that I have not rjeeh 
asked to attend such meetings, still 
my alibi is not complete. .' For why 
have I not placed myself in position 
to be asked ? 

How many committees have I ser- 
ved on to help the community, or its 
churches, schools, charities, or its civ- 
ic, commercial and industrial growth? 
Have I stood on the street corner 
pnd criKzed, or have I aided in the 
construction and in. the discussion of 
problems to help bring about remedies 
for my town's conditions? 

Have I "kicked"' about certain civ- 
ic leaders and officials and then smil- 
ed in the faces of my accused? 
Haje I really understodd, or have 
honestly tried to understand, what 
this city -is facing in regard to its 
future growth and the prosperity and 
happiness of its people? In short 
have I cared? 

L Have I cleaned the rubbish off my 
own lot before critizing my neighbors 
for not cleaning his? 

Have 1 the spirit of calmness, the 
quality of civic-mindedness, the love 
and charity of community life ? 

Have I seen any higher than my 
own counter, or looked any farther 
than the curbstone in front - of my 
place of business ? * . 

Have I realized that, comparative- 
ly speaking a few men -and women of 
my community have actually support- 
ed it in a- civic way, while I have not 
done my full duty nor contributed my 
full share? 

Have I merely been "staying" in 
this city, or have I been living? here. 
Have I been merely a resident of 
Benson, or have I been one of its citi- 
zens ? 

Have I as a business man in the 
community been leaning back and let- 
ting the other buiness men in the 
town do all the advertising, and I not 
doing any advertising to stimulate 
business, but relied upon my neigh- 
bors to do it all and I reap the bene- 
fits of their efforts to bring trade to 
the city. 

Why should I not realize what the 
other fellow has been doing and re- 
solve to do my share of the boosting 
for the community this new year? "* 
Here is' the community test, a real 
test of citizenship. How many of 'us 
can make a satisfactory passing 
grade. 



OLD STUFF— BUT TRUE. 

(Montevideo News) 
This is old stuff, but important just 
now when proposals to add to the cost 
of government are surprisingly popu- 
lar. Senator Capper of Kansas says:. 
"On public payrolls in 1913 there were 
1,785,000 names. Now there are 
2,600,000 names." It is proposed to 
add new departments and new govern- 
ment employes, not only in 'Washing- 
ton, but in -Minnesota. It is the part 
of wisdom to-^o slow, no matter how 
worthy, some pet. project may appear 
to be. - 

It costs the average family $125.00 
in taxes-a year to pay the salaries of 
those now on some public payroll. 
Special commissions the born every 
time a legislative body meets. The 
present Congress is asked to create 15 
more, including: one to investigate -a 
massacre thatliappened 75 years ago. 
There are about 100 special governs 
mental agencies in Washington to 
compare with 14 twenty years ago. 
Of course the cost, has grown, too.

IT PUZZLES MOTHER 

(Alexandria' Times', Tribune) 
Mother arises in the morning, gets 
breakfast-for father and the: children,

father off to work. Father spends the 
day earning -money. VMJother spends it 
sewing,- mending, washing, toning!

backrto. school, supervising their play 
and study after school, " correcting, 
what she considers injurious, habits,

When father comes home he plays 
his part in the family life. He con- 
sults with the children about school 
problems, lays down the i law with 
authority on points where »■ mother 
thinks she has not been 'sufficiently 
impressive, and adds weight to his 
wordsln seeing that next day's school 
work is prepared/ and finally in get- 
ting the reluctant youngsters to go to 
bed. - -■ i - ' 

At last a few minutes l of peace. 
Mother picks up the evening- paper 
and reads: "The home is the weakest 
spot in America's social j fabric to- 
day,'' Dr. W. A. TretHeni professor 
of psychology in Toledo University 
declared. "Its- influence Ishould be 
forced to work out our domestic 1 prob- 
lems instead of side-stepping fiiem.'" 

It puzzles mother. She doesn't 
quite see what more she could have 
done. She reads item to father.\ He 
is equally in the' dark. — Alexandria 
Times Tribune and Cokato Enterprise.:

vey at the Minnesota University show

seem to exactly prove the! claim that 
the courses of study at the' U tend to 
draw its students away from-rel'gious 
thou'ghtfulness... Rather the contrary, 
in fact. Frequently is heard the com- 
plaint that "students come j out of the

City of Thief Bivcr Falls 



WELCOME DAIRYMEN. 
Thief j River Falls is host next 
week to the dairymen of the state 
when they entertain the members of 
the State and Red River Valley 
Dairymen's associations in their an- 
nual conventions. Our city', is hon- 
ored by the distinction conferred upon 
it by being selected as the conven- 
tiort" cityi for these important organ- 
izations. I The program offered is of 
-the highest type. Speakers of nation- 
al prominence will discuss problems 
of special interest to the farmers, of 
this community. It will be well 
worth the time of every person in- 
terested in dairying to attend the ses- 
sions of i-this convention. ' 

"Loafing is getting j so expensive 
that the only solution, is more. work." 



A LESSON IN QUALITY. 

The outstanding feature of the 
poultry show was the turkey exhibit. 
It indicated not only the tremendous 
increase in the numbers 'of these birds 
being raised in this community but 
also represented the high standard! of 
quality which the farmers of this com- 
munity have achieved. It is only a 
short time ago that the; turkeys ship- 
ped from this ; point were practically 
all "seconds" in quality. This year 
there were comparatively few "sec- 
onds" shipped from here and as a re- 
sult the receipts were generally very 
satisfactory. 

What i the farmers of this com- 
munity have done in a short time in 
the development of high quality tur- 
keys, they are also doing in the de- 
velopment of other varieties of live 
stock. It will take longer for the re- 
sults of good breeding to: be noticeable 
in other live stock than in poultry but 
the effect will be the same eventually. 
As with poultry, it will mean bigger 
receipts and bigger profits for our 
farmers.

cal over i period of years, it does not 
necessaril; r follow that it is the part 
of wisdom to make such expenditures. 
Mortgaging the future is sometimes 
necessary,' but it should not be done 
unless it is necessary. When we con- 
sider the wonderful progress that has 
been made during the past few years 
on a pay-as-you-go method of finance 
we are content with the prospects of 
such further improvement during the 
next few! year's as the present rate 
of taxation will permit

BONDS FOR ROADS. 
Minnesota has an unusually fine 
system of roads, and considering the 
comparatively short period in which 
this condition has been reached, the 
Jesuits are really remarkable. One 
•outstanding feature of this accom- 
plishment is the fact that there is 
practically universal satisfaction 
' amnp.g the people of "the state with 
the results. And this satisfaction is 
well founded. The task of lifting 
Minnesota out of the mud was given 
to one man and this man, Charles 
Babcock, has justified the confidence 
placed in him. He has - proved him- 
self big enough for the big job. 

Mi. Babcock has outlined his plans 
for the future and is asking a greatly 
increased appropriation from the 
state to carry out those plans. He has 
figured out that the state will save 
money by hard-surfacing the heavy 
travelled highways of the state at 
.once .and paying for them over a 
period of years. In order to accom- , 
- plish this he asks that the license fee ! b >\™ ln &- 
on errs and tax on gasoline be in- 
creased and that in addition to this 
the state borrow twenty million dol- 
lars during the, next two years. This 
would mean that during the next 
two years more than sixty million 
dollars would be spent on Minneso- 
ta's highways. 

Governor Ted Christianson, how- 
ever, opposes this . proposition of the 
highway department, and the legis- 



FORD'S FIFE-DAY- WEEK 
, When [Henry Ford Jiasn't enough 
work to keep his factories busy six 
days a week he operates only five days 
a week. ; This: is a sensible thing to 
do. Henry, however,-' insists on bfr 
,ing a super-man. He must have an 
altruistic I motive for his actions, no 
matter how commonplace and sordid 
the actiorjs may be*. So when Henry 
sleeps late or rises early, raises or low- 
ers the price of cars, expresses an 
opinion on jazz music or fiddlers, or 
shuts down his factories one more 
day a week, his platoon of publicity 
men immediately broadcast to the 
world that a great reform has been 
effected and that the dawn of the in- 
dustrial millenium is just around the 
corner. In this hum-drum adjust- 
ment of a manufacturer who ' has 
spread himself out too thin they see 
the birth; of a great revolutionary 
economic; principle. - 

It is a; splendid thing that Henry 
is in such a healthy financial condi- 
tion that he can pay his men six 
days wagts for five days of work. 
We have: ho objection whatsoever 
to him doing this. It is fine — noble 
— beautiful. But when he asserts 
that this is the proper arrangement 
and that if this program were gener- 
ally applied thruout all industry it 
would increase national prosperity by 
giving the common people more time 
to spend their money, we rise to move 
that -Mr. ■ Ford have his mind ex- 
amined. As one unit of that vast body 
called the common people we would 
like to impress upon Mr. Ford the 
fact that puf-difficulty is not in find- 
ing time to spend our money. What 
we need to be shown is how to in- 
crease our! earning capacity in the 
first place and in the second place how 
to salt those earnings away after we 
get them. ; If Mr. Ford will reveal 
this secret to the masses we will bow 
down in .abject humility before his 
master mind.

A COMMUNITY TEST 
(Swift County Monitor) 
At the close of the year, when busi- 
ness men, merchants and accountants 
are checking; up the year's losses and 
gams, is it not a good time to take 
an. inventory of ourselves in' relation 
to what we have done for our com- 
munity T 

It is so easy to critize others, in- 
cluding the public officials as well as 
leaders in a non-official, yet highly 
important, phase of civic work. 
\Far be it from the editor of this 
paper to claim exemption from the 
test. Bach one of us should ask these 
self-directed questions, and profit by 
the astounding results shown up on the 
wrong side-^the red ink aide— of the 
community ledger. Here is the test: 
During 1926 what have I done to 
help this city, my community? 

How many meetings in relation to 
civic problems have I attended ? If 
my answer is that I have not been 
asksd to attend such meetings, still 
my alibi is not complete. For why 
have I not placed myself in position 
to be asked? { 

How many committees have I ser- 
ved .on to help the community, or its 
churches, schools, charities, or its civ- 
ic, continercial and industrial growth? 
Have I stood on the street corner 
and critized, or have I aided in the 
construction and in the discussion of 
problems to help bring about remedies 
for my town's conditions? 

Have I "kicked"' about certain civ- 
ic leaders and officials land then smil- 
ed in^the faces of my accused? 

Haje I really understood, or have 
I honestly tried to understand, > what 
this city is facing in regard toi its 
future growth and the prosperity and 
.happiness of its people? In short 
have I cared? ; 

Have I cleaned the rubbish off my 
own lot before critizing my neighbors 
for not cleaning his? 

Have f the spirit of calmness, the 
quality of civic-mindedness, the ilove 
and charity of community life ? 

Have I. seen any higher than my 
own counter, or looked any farther 
than the curbstone in front - of my 
place of business ? * 

Have*I realized that, comparative- 
ly speaking a few men-and women of 
my community have actually support- 
ed it in a- civic way, while I have not 
done my full duty nor contributed my 
full/share? 

Have I merely been "staying" in 
this city, or have I been living? here. 
Have I been merely a resident of 
Benson, oriiave I been one of its citi- 
zens ? 

Have I a s a bnsmess man in the 
community been leaning back and let- 
ting the other buiness men in' the 
town do all the advertising and Inot 
doing any advertising to stimulate 
business, but relied upon my neigh- 
bors to do it all and I reap the bene- 
fits of their efforts to bring trade to 
the city. 

Why should I not realize what the 
other fellow ha s been doing and re- 
solve to do my share of the boosting 
for the community this new year? - 
Here is' the community test, a real 
test of citizenship. How many .of "us 
can make a satisfactory passing 
grade. 



The mark of every first-rate man 
is sufficient egotism to overcome the 
shyness that blocks self-expression. 
Most of .us are so self-conscious that 
when we: step out of our own little 
corner we become as timid as mice, 
and as one writer says, we behave 
like idiots. 

What we must learn, according to 
the psychologists, is that everyone else 
is a victim of the same timidity that 
thwarts us. A few have had' the 



OLD STUFF— BUT TRUE. 
(Montevideo News) 

This is old 'stuff, but important just 
now when proposals to add to the cost 
of government are surprisingly popu- 
lar. Senator Capper of Kansas says:. 
"On public payrolls in 1913 there were 
1,785,000 names. Now there are 
2,600,000 names." It is proposed to 
add new departments and new govern- 
ment employes, not only in Washing- 
ton, but in Minnesota. It is the part 
of wisdom to--go slow, no matter How 
worthy some pet project may appear 
to be. 

It costs the average family $125.00 
in taxes-a year to pay the salaries of 
those now on some public payroll. 
Special commissions the born every 
time a legislative body meets. The 
present Congress is asked to create 15 
more, including one to investigate- -a 
massacre that happened 75 years ago. 

There are about 100 special govern- 
mental agencies in Washington to 
compare with [14 twenty years ago. 
Of course the cost has grown, too. 
Any state, anywhere, -can macth the 



stbry;ih!a' smaller -way. ^ Minnesota's 
legislature will 116 bombarded : with 
proposals to. increase the state tax 
burden. Many of them are worthy 
but few of thehivaw essential There 
is still need of economy and it will not 
disappoint the people bf!\he state if 
the Legislature leans backward in con- 
serving their tax resources. 

IT PUZZLES MOTHER" 

(Alexandria Times Tribune) 

Mother arises in the morning, gets 
breakfast-for father and the children, 
gets the children off to school- and 
father off to work. Father spends the 
day earning money. Mjother spends it 
sewing, mending, washing, ironing, 
preparing a hot lunch for the children 
seeing that they are clean as they go 
back" to school,' supervising their play 
and study after school,- correcting 
what she considers injurious habits, 
checking upon' bad manners, getting 
and serving dinner. 

Wlien father comes home he pTays 
his part in the family life. He con- 
sults with the children about school 
problems, lays down the law with 
authority on points where . mother 
thinks she has not been sufficiently 
impressive, and- adds weight to his 
words"ln seeing that next day's school 
work .is prepared/ and finally in get- 
ting the reluctant youngsters -to go to 
bed. . - . . •-' 

I At last a few minutes of peace. 
Mother picks up the evening' paper 
and reads: "The home is the weakest 
spot in- America's social fabric to- 
day,"! Dr. W. A. Trettien, professor 
of psychology in Toledo University 
declared. "Its influence should be 
forced to work out our domestic prob- 
lems instead of side-stepping them."' 

It puzzles mother. She doesn't 
quite see what more she could have 
done. She reads item to father. He 
is equally in the dark. — Alexandria 
Times Tribune and Cokato Enterprise. 

.'Figures obtained in a recent sur- 
vey at the Minnesota University show' 
"there is ah increase in the percentage 
engaged in religious activities in the 
junior and senior years as compared 
with the firs,t two years." That doesn't 
seem to exactly prove the claim that 
the courses of study at the U tend to 
draw its students away from-rel'gious 
thoughtfulness. Rather the contrary, 
in fact Frequently is heard the com- 
plaint that "students come out of the 
University without a smattering of 
religion." It is just possible that 
these students went inwith the same 
lack."— Redwood Gazette.

Suppose we all help someone else to

Suppose we ne'er speak j of the faults

And never hurt anyone "just for

In addition to the suggestions for a 
Happy New Year in the preceding 
• poem the editor of "The Central He- 
view" adds also the following little re- 
minder for making and : keeping the 
New Year a happy one. We hope that 
these reminders will help the boys 
and girls of Central Scb'inl to remem- 
ber their New Year resolutions. 

1. Wish others the best of luck 
during the year in a friendly, but sin- 
cere way. 

2. Forget all worries of the past 
year and start the New Year as fault- 
lessly as possible. 

3. Try to do your best at what- 
ever work you undertake to do. 
.4. Work hard. At least do your 
best. Do not become easily discour- 
aged. 

5. Forget the idea that you ever 
had any enemies and make them your 
best friends, 

6. Be cheerful and courteous. 
Make the New Year- as; bright for 
others; as well as for yourself, as you 
possibly can. 



the snow eff so the ice was nice and 
smooth. When I had finished, I put 
on my skates and tried harder than 
ever to learn. In about an hour of 
sliding and falling, I at last succeed- 
ed in being able to take a few Strokes 
without falling. , 

That night when my friends came 
oyer I told them all about my skating 
rink which was just big enough to 
take only a few strokes and about 
learning how to skate a little. They 
asked me ;if I would go skating, with 
them the next day and I said I would. 
Ever^ since that day I have enjoyed 
skating although I cannot skate very 
well.

Toms' First Experience On Skates. 
One day as Tom was sitting in the 
house he had nothing to do. His' friend 
came over and asked him if he'wanfc- 
ed to go skating. After much plead- 
ing Ton decided to try. He had got 
a new pair of skates for his birthday. 
They soon reached the river where 
there was. a large rink. To Tom's 



ham team has promised to come to 
Thief River Falls for a return match. 
Following are several tabulated 
scores which tell as many stories. The 
big surprise, however, is the defeat of 
Lambert's Loafers who considered 
themselves to be invincble . Games 
played this week thus far werei Mon-

A Gentle Hint. 

All over the country on New Years 

Day, 
Good resolutions are given away. 
There are more than enough for every 

one. 
You can have a good measure, a peck 

or a ton.. 
Take a dozen, my. laddie and lass, 
But handle them gently, they're brit- 

- tie as glass. 
If you care for them daily it will not 

be long 
Before they'll be growing quite hardy 

and strong. 
And when they are older they'll take 

care of yon, 
For then they'll be habits, and good 

habits, too. 

Anna M. Pratt.

A Hint of Life! 
Don't look for the flaws as you 

through life; 
And even when you find them 
It is wise and kind to be somewhat 

blind, 
And look for the virtues behind t them: 
For the cloudiest night has ai hint of 

light. 
Somewhere in the shadows hiding, 
It is better by far to hunt for a star, 
Than the spot on the sun abiding. 

The world will never adjust itself 
To suit your whims to the letter; 
Some things must go wrong your 

whole life long, 
And the sooner vou know it, the bet- 
ter. | 
It is folly to fight with the Infinite; 
The wiser man, shapes ; into God's 

good plan, 
As the water shapes into j a vessel. 
— Ella Wheel Wflcox.

My First Experience on Skates. 
One bright morning I went skating 
on the river. I had a hard time getting 
■ on my skates, but I managed it after 
awhile. I couldn't stand up so I .'sat 
down' on the hard ice and' just about 
broke my crown. I tried it again. Be- 
fore I knew it I could stand on -the 
skates and skate around, jbnt it was 
hard work. I thought I could skate 
well enough and when some skaters 
came along I tried to catch them. I 
fell down and could hardly get up 
again. I got up some 1 way, I don't 
know how and went home. [ I first ate 
.my dinner, then I went to skate again 
on the river; so now- 1 can skate. 

Wallace Stromberg' 7th grade. 

My First; Experience onj Skates. 

One day during Christmas vacation, 
two of my friends came to get me to 
• go skating, but I told them I didn't 
know how to skate although I had 
skates Then they told me! there was 
nothing like trying. At last I decid- 
ed to go with them. When I got down 
to the ice, I put on my skates and 
tried to skate, but in vain. The more I 



ways in order to skate but he coukFnt 

succeed anyway whatever. His friend 

whose name was Robert, said he._ „ 

would hold him so he ran up to the *• tsuTns - 

house arid got a sled and a box. Tom 

wondered what he was going to do 

with it. He soon found out that he 

was to. hold on to the box and Robert 

would pull him.' As soon as Robert 

dropped the rope and pulled the sled 

away, Tom would fall but they kept 

it up this way until Tom could stand 

on his skates, which Tom thought 

was well done." Robert and Tom went 

skating many times after that but 

Tom said he hoped he would never fall 

anymore as he did tne first day he 

tried.

The Submarine Sailor. 

A submarine sailor must have at 
least two years of study at , the An- 
napolis Naval Academy and experien- 
ce of two or more years on a destroy- 
er. When he signs.- up for under sea 
service ninteen times out of twenty 
he is signingl up to go to Davy Jones' 
locker. While he is in service he has 
many interesting, dangerous, "thrilling 
experiences both on top 'and under 
water. 

Among the most dreadful deaths is 
dying under water trapped like a 
mouse, no way of escape and no air 
to live on. . And that is what often 
happens in a submarine. There are no 
life boats to try t . escape in. The 
sailor is caged like a rat in a trap. 

The diary of a man on the sub- 
maeine S-7/when going over to France- 
with a flotilla tells how they were 
tossed in a storm mercilessly for four 
days and nights and the ship was 
nearly battered to pieces. Captain 
Cooke of the submarine S-5 was trap- 
ed under water with thirty men for 
nearly seventy hours and he almost 
lost his ship, his men and his own life 
in the bargain. 

Eugene Hess, 8th grade.

TRULY the moitbeautiful Chevrolet 
in Chevrolet history I Truly 'an 
achievement which must immediately 
change all existing ideas as to what the 
buyer of a low priced car has a right to 
expect for his money! 

Here is the irresistible appeal of un- 
broken, flowing body lines— of modish 
new Duco colors, fashionably striped — 
of notable smartness — of that flawless 
silhouette regularly associated with the 
costliest of custom-built creations. 

Here are score after score of advance* 
merits in design, literally too numerous 
to list completely — but typified by one- 
piece full-crown fenders, bullet-type 
lamps, coincidental steering and igni- 
tion lock and large 17-inch steering 
wheel. 

Here is definite assurance of longer lite, 
more satisfactory operation and even 
greater economy — for all models are 
equipped with a new' AC oil filter and an 
improved AC air cleaner! 

Such features as these are usually found 
only on cars costing up into the thou- 
sands. They are marks of distinction on 
the world's finest automobiles. Yet these 
are now offered on The Most Beautiful 
Chevroletbecausethespectaculargrowth ' 



of ChevroletpopularityhassentChevroIet 
production to tremendous volume — and 
only the economies of tremendous volume 
plus inspired engineering make possible 
the manufacture of so fine a car to sell at 
Chevrolet prices. 

We urge you to come in for a personal in- 
spection. And we ask you to come, notin 
the customary casual mood — but actual- 
ly anticipating the revelation you would 
expect when the world's largest builder 
of gearshift automobiles announces a 
completely new line of cars whose truly 
great value is based on irresistible beauty

gin the practice of the 
homely virtue.

count and paying cash 
for personal and house- 
hold needs, your mon- 
ey begina to work; for 
yo'u, earning more' 
money in interest and 
in lower prices. 

January 17,' the first 
day o£ National Thrift 
Week, is Franklin's 
.birthday. Honoring 
America's foremost 
v apostle of thrift \ by' 
starting your thrift

Senator Oscar A. Naplin of this city, 
died at the Miller Hospital in St. Paul 
Saturday morning at 7:40 o'clock as 
a result of a stroke of apoplexy which 
he suffered on January 3 when walk- 
ing from the State Capital following 
Jhe opening session of. the Minnesota 
Legislature. For several days his 
condition had been improving and it 
was felt that he had a good chance to 
recover, but on Wednesday his condi- 
tion took a turn for the worse and he 
became gradually weaker until the 
end. Mrs. Naplin, who has-been with 
him in St Paul, was at his bedside 
at the time of his death. 

His remains arrived here Monday 
morning and from the hours of ten 
to twelve a. m. of that day his body 
lay in state in the Augustana Luther- 
an Church. Funeral services were held 
at the Trinity Lutheran Church Mon- 
day afternoon commencing at one 
o'clock and the large building was fill- 
ed to capacity by the more than seven 
hundred neighbors and friends who 
gathered to pay their last respects to 
him. A hymn,. "Come, Ye Disconsol- 
ate,- Where'er Ye Languish," was 
sung, followed by -the reading of a 
short sketch of the life of Mr. Naplin. 
by Rev. Albin Larson of Warren. .An- 
other hymn, "My Jesus, as Thou 
Wilt," was sung by the audience and 
a prayer spoken by Rev.Xarson. The 
Trinity Church male quartet consist- 
ing of Robert Lund, Dr. O. F. Mellby, 
Ttev. IS. It Tallakson' and Dr. P. L 
Vistaunet sang "Some Day.," August 
Westlund, pastor of the Augustana 
Lutneran Church, of which Mr. Nap- 
lin was a member, delivered a sermon 
in Swedish. , and . following another 
song, "Jesus, Saviour, Pilot Me," by 
the quartet, Rev. Larson of Warren

ular young society man may enter the

statement at the present time, but. 

his manager, Dr. David Berge, re- 
marked that if Joe does go into the 

race the feathers will fly. It is 

thought by some that Mr. LaBoe will 

wait until after the primaries to enter 

the race, thus saving the $10 filisg 

fee. It is thought that this example j 

of Joe's economy in public ; expense' 

would make fine campaign thunder, 

proving beyond all question that he is 

in favor of Europe paying her debts. 
Mr. LaBoe is the manager of 

Swift's plant, and Dr. Berge says that 

it wUl be vigorously, denied ifneces- 

sary, that Joe was in any way impli-

OSCAR NAPLIN. 

It wasn't the memory of Oscar 
Naplin, the Senator, that the com- 
munity paused to honor; Monday. It 
was the memory of Oscar Naplin, the 
Man.. And it will be as Oscar Nap- 
lin, the Man, that he will be remem- 
bered by the people of this commun- 
ity. ;. 

Honest, capable, considerate and 
generous, he was loved by those who 
knew him intimately, while those who 
came in contact with him profession- 
ally, or politically, either in opposi- 
tion to him or in working with him, 
respected him. It was a sad and sin- 
cere community that paused Monday 
in honor of Senator Oscar Naplin, a 
Man. 



REAL CO-OPERATION. 
While we hear much talk of co- 
operative creameries and poultry as- 
sociations and shipping ■'- associations 
and various organizations of the far- 
mers designed to aid them in the mar- 

—keting of their products, there is" one 
form of farmer co-operation whjch 
has proven universally successful arid 
yet has been given little publicity. 
These are the fanners' mutual fire 
insurance companies, such as the Bray 
Mutual which operates in this com- 
munity, and many thousands of dol- 
lars are saved by the farmers of the 
northwest each year in fire insurance 
premiums thru these organizations. 

for instance during this past year 
the Bray company had in the neigh- 
borhood of fifteen hundred policies in 
effect in Pennington and' Red Lake 
counties giving a protection of over 
three and one-half million dollars, 
and this protection cost the farmers 
less than $3,000. On this basis the 

* actual cost for protection is less than 
a dollar per thousand. 

There really isn't anything remark- 
able about this condition. The com- 
pany can operate at a low cost because 
there is practically no overhead ex- 
pense and no salaries to speak of. By 
the nature of the risks insured the 
losses are always scattered. Unlike 
cities, where fires might. wipe out en- 
tire sections of buildings, there is lit- 
tle danger of fire spreading from on? 
farm to another. There are plenty of 
reasons why such companies as the 
Bray should be able to give the farm- 
ers cheap protection from fire. It is 
however, to the credit of the farmers 
. that they have perfected such an or- 
ganization that will give them that 
service and that for more than thirty 
years, that organization has given 
them effective protection. It is cer- 
tainly an outstanding testimonial in 
favor of co-operation. 



ore on all manner of . pretexts and 
technicalities, i . 

"Many hours of the cdurt's time 
are spent; in winnowing out talesmen 
who show signs of intelligence or 
judgment. ;' ; - 

"A man' who has read of the case 
in the newspapers or heard it discuss- 
ed, is successfully challenged. If he 
has formed an opinion, but declares 
that he is open-minded and will change 
it under the weight of evidence, he 
may be rejected. 

"Counsels will search deeply into a 
talesman's -history, friendships, affili- 
ations, religious or political convic- 
tions, in order to determine, whether 
he is likely to be prejudiced for or 
against their clients. 

"Miscarriages of justice through 
the stupidity or prejudice of juries 
thus chosen 'have become steadily 
more' f remient. ' .~ ■ 

"Originally7 an accused man was 
judged by i"a jury ;of his peers," that 
is, by neighbors who knew him well 
and werejlkely to know more or less 
about the alleged crime. But we have 
swung far to the other extreme, 
through letting counsel fight over the 
make-up of the jury, with all manner 
of technicalities to help them prolong 
and stultify the process. 

"The results of the Chicago experi- 
ment will be watched with interest. A 
trial judge can, choose a fairer and 
betterijury, than counsel can. He could 
and would listen to reasonable objec- 
tions from either side, but he would 
brush aside all the flummery and fool- 
ishness of i the present process,_ whose 
sole purpose appears to be' to impede 
and ofter to thwart justice. 

"We have permitted our trial judg- 
es to be stripped of their powers and 
made mere presiding officers in the 
tournaments of trial lawyers. We shall 
expedite justice and make it more 
sure-footed, if; we give our trial judg- 
es the powers; their like have in Eng- 
land and Canada over the manner in 
which cases are conducted. The niost 
important of these is control over the 
choice of the jury.'' 



One of the defects of modern civil- 
ization, it has been pointed out, is 
that too much emphasis has been 
placed on saving time. Much of the 
time that we save isn't worth saving. 
Wc step on the gas, endangering life 
, and property, in order to get to our ; mC nt. 



destination ten minutes earlier, and 
after we do get there, if so fortunate, 
we waste a couple of hours telling 
thd world how fast wc drove. We're 
a queer lot of fish. 



A- SOUND IDEA. 

Becauseiprisoners have been abused 
in some states; other states have gone 
to the other extreme and placed their 
prisoners upon an entirely too lofty 
pedestal. The idea of puttirig a prison- 
er to work under conditions that will 
kill him is murder, of course, and 
many such murders have doubtlessly 
been committed in the past by various 
states. The idea, however, of mak- 
ing a prison sentence a rest period, 
where every conceiyable comfort is 
provided for the law breaker and he 
is given the best of foods and required 
to do nothings but read and sleep — if 
that's prison then the only reason for 
the bars on the doors nnd windows is 
to keep people; out. The Grand Rap- 
ids Herald suggests that there is a 
happy medium somewhere between 
the two extremes, and doubtless there 
is. The Herald says: 

"Most moonshiners do not like to 
work. Most criminals dislike labor. 
Otherwise they would be working- in- 
stead of violating the law. There is 
more money in working than ' in 
breaking laws., The. successful men of 
any Community are never the law- 
breakers. . ' : 

"We have, not only in Itasca coun- 
ty, but everywhere in Minnesota, the 
problem of the bootlegger, in particu- 
lar. We catch him for violation of 
the liquor. laws. We put hini into a 
good, warm comfortable ~jail, treat 
him respectfully and feed him well. 
Confinement in a jail doesn't offend 
most persistent law violators. In fact, 
to many it is a stroke of good fortune 
to be well provided for when the road 
to the moonshine shack is piled high 
with snow. : 

"There is in our county jail, • at 
most times of the' year, enough men 
whose labor could really count . for 
something. The Herald-Review has 
always argued that this labor should 
be utilized for good public purposes. 
Nothing lias been done. 

"The county may establish a work 
farm. Several counties have them.

like it. It will hurt' the -feelings of 
some of (jhern, 'But as long ; as most 
of the people of the county are clear- 
ing land • and working in the woods 
and fields there is ho reason why the 
law violator should beexcused. 

"We have always had a sort of a 
maudlin isympathy for. prisoners. 
There is nothing new about the work 
theory. It is practicerjjri all modern, 
penal institutions. It should be in 
force here. ^ 

"Some Itasca county officials have 
an opportunity to distinguish them- 
selves in constructive public service." 



WRECKING MARRIAGES 
(Grand Rapids Herald Bewiew) 
Here is another cause for divorce. 
An eminent lawyer who has appeared 
in .1772 divorce cases say s that the 
mother-in-law really isn!t the cause 
for divorces. In only six -of the cases 
with whioih he has had experience was 
the mother-in-law at the bottom of 
the disagreement. He does not even 



whole nation, formerly -it was axiom 
that competition was* the life of trade. 
Under the methods of the present day 
it would seem to be more 'appropriate 
to say that advertising is the life of 
trade." . . .. j" 1 

By creating a demand and stimulat- 
ing business advertising tends to ref 
duee prices and the cost of living. It 
raises, too, the standard of the pro! 
ducts which we buy. It brings theref 
fore, greater prosperity to the adver- 
tiser and greater satisfaction to the 
buyer. There is no longer any doubt 
about its general benefit. But, as yet, 
few of us realize its tremendous im- 
portance.

Maybe there 'is something to it. The 
engagement ring may be bought on 
the installment plan; the furniture 
may be bought on installments; the 
baby carriage or automobile may be 
bought for a. few dollars down and the 
rest per month, 

All of this reminds us of the picture 
we saw or story we heard about the 
young husband who returned home 
one evening. He was met at the door 
by his wife and baby. "Well," he said, 
as he took off his overcoat, . "I paid 
the doctor $10 more' on account to- 
day." The young wife looked quite 
happy as" she said, "Good, two more' 
payments and the baby will be ours." 

We note that the so-called eceno- 
mic experts of the country are how 
engaged in a discussion as to the in- 
stallment buying plan and methods. 
Perhaps they should consider this 
subject in relation to marital dis- 
asters and see if the Chicago lawyer 
is right, i 

A GREAT NEW BUSINESS 
( Morris Tribune.) 

One of the newest sciences which 
we have with us is the science of ad- 
vertising. And advertising has really 
come to be a science. It is no longer 
conducted in a haphazard way. Men 
of brains and ability have studied it 
and have evolved plans which bring 
about the greatest amount of good 
through advertising, benefit to the 
public as; well as to the advertiser. 

It is pleasing to know that men 
everywhere are beginning to_ appreci- 
ate the great part of good^which ad- 
vertising; plays in our everyday life. 
That we ; do not yet fully appreciate 
this good, 'however, is evidenced by 
the fact that only a small percentage 
of the potential advertisers avail 
themselves of its assistance. 

In a recent address, President Cool- 
idge pointed to the fact that we are 
still apt to place too low an estimate 
on the- subject of advertising. Mam- 
moth factories and great transporW 
tion systems impress us when we 
come in personal contact with them, 
the president said, but we have not 
yet comelto appreciate the great busi- 
ness which greets us through the ad- 
vertising pages in the newspapers and 
periodicals, of the country. Yet even 
the most Icasuai examination must 
point to us, the president added, that 
advertising, has now become a great 
business.: "" 

Then to show why this is true he 
continued: 

"When! we stop to consider the part 
which advertising plays in the modern 
life of production and trade we see 
that basically it is that of education. 
■It informs its readers of the existence 
and nature of commodities by explain- 
ing the advantages to be derived from 
their use and creates for them a wid- 
er demand. It makes new thoughts, 
new desires and new - actions. By 
changing the attitude of the mind it- 
changes the material condition of the 
people. Somewhere I have seen as- 
cribed to Abraham Lincoln the state- 
ment that 'In this and like communi- 
ties public sentiment is everything. 
With public sentiment nothing can 
fail; without it nothing can succeed; 
consequently he who molds public sen- 
timent goes deeper than he who_ en- 
acts statutes or pronounces decisions. 
He makes statutes and decisions pos- 
sible or imposible to be'executed. 

"Advertising creates and changes 
this foundation of popular action, pub- 
lic sentimenVor public opinion. ' It 
si %i •noraido ofiqnd jo 'juourrjuas otj

and changing the habits and modes of

The game started out fast and after 
a few seconds of play Bill Hallameck 
got a field goal, which Erskine soon 
tied up and went into the lead after 
connecting with some long shots by 
hJlingson mixed with one short one 

first half tie Saints offense worked 

CT 5: d ? :k , on 'y t0 miss easy shots, 
but the fumbling of the guards on 
defense and traveling made it possi- 
ble for Erskine to get the ball to 
shoot there few shots. 

After the between half discussion 
things went different. The defense 
let Erskine down with only seven 
shots at the basket and ; these were 
numed and somewhat long. While 
again the Saints' offense worked in 
Jp top shape and it resulted in 7 
field goals for the locals. Beside 
their one field goal Erskine made 3 
of their gift shots, scoring but E 
points to St. Hilaire's 15. The score 
at the end of the first half wa ?™ 
6 in Erskme's favor. ... - 

The local quint had 11 fouls called 
on them and this put Wendell Beebe 
and Clarence Hallstrom out of the 
game. Thomas Hovet went in Beebe's 
place and the game was finished with 
four men. A. FJlingson starred for 
Erskine, while Bill Hallameck, Loyd 
Johnson and Ken Hovet played the 
best for the Saints. ; ■

USUAL CORN ACREAGE 

> SHOULD BE PLANTED 

"Farmers should be encouraged to 
maintain the usual acreage of corn," 
says Wi L. Cavert farm manage- 
nwnt specialist of the university's ag- 
ncultaral extension service. Early 
planting of early maturing varities 
is recommended in view: of the failure 
pi much of the crop to ripen the- last 
Wreeseasons. Of other farm crops 
in 1927 Mr. Caeert says: 

Oats— Early varieties, "particular 
Gopher oats, have shown their su- 
perior value for southern and central 
Minnesota and should be grown in 
Preference to the later maturing vari- 

Barley— probably room for some 
expansion at the expense of oats. 
'Should be seeded only on land that is 
in a high state of fertility. 

Wheat— Farmers in planning their 
acreage should be guided by average 
yjews and prices over a period of 
years rather than by the relatively 
favorable returns for the last three 
crops. 

Potatoes.— Two profitable crops in 
succession probably spells an increas- 
ed acreage in 1927. The: unprofitable 
years as well as the good ones should 
oeiEept m mind. . 

Flax— Lirdt of profitable expansion 
about reached except in so far as, the 



crop carTrepiaee : oats on clean com 

Hay and Pasture— Generous ex- 
pansion recommended, especially of 
alfalfa and sweet clover. For hog 
pasture rape or a mixture of rape and 
small gram is the equal of alfalfa. 
The use of gueh a mixture wfll enable 
farmers who lost seedrhgs of alfalfa 
or clover to save all the alfalfa far- 
bay with a view to having a mixunurn 
amount of good winter feed for their 
cattle. 



A native of Baalbek, .Turkey, un-

losing bis heme. 

An air Mail pilot dropped a land-

A man and his 
wife were in yester- 
day, buying some 
furniture. We sug- 
gested a Victor Felt 
mattress. "For 'good- 
ness sake," she ex- 
claimed, "don't sug- 
gest that." "I have 
a hard enough time 
as it is getting that 
man up in the morn- 
ingl" And that be- 
ing the situation, we 
didn't say another 
word, because a Vic- 
tor; Felt mattress 
does encourage late 
sleeping. ' 

Do any of you 
masculine readers 
carry a. pocket- 
piece? We are sur- 
prised how many do. 
We know a man 
who has carried a 
potato for many 
years. It~nis wither- 
ed, shrunk and pet- 
rified until it has 
completely lost its 
identity. The sur- 
face is smooth and 
glossy. We know 
another man who 
has carried an 1834 
half dollar for years 
because that was the 
date his mother was 
horn. 



A certain young 
man in this city 
loves a young lady, 
that is his business. . 
That young lady 
loves him in return, 
that is her business. 
Soon they will get 
married, .that is 
their_ business, and 
then "they will need 
furniture, that is our 
business. 



You workhard all 
day, no doubt. Tha(t 
being the case, you 
are entitled to a 
good bed at nightr*^ 
No argument there, 
is there? All right, 
just combine a Vic- 
tor Felt mattress 
with a duplex spring 
and- your day's work 
will be richly re- 
warded with a won- 
derful night's rest/

where he gained a medal in 1829 for 
his poem entitled 'Timbuctoo.''

The Whaleman. 
Whaling used to be a great indus- 
try, but now, when they have better 
ways to get whales it isnt so import- 
ant. Whaling was the hardest and 
most dangerous life for any seaman. 
There are two kinds of whales that 
are hunted especially. They are the 
sperm and rights whales. The sperm

report, all thr^e are still living. 



The Deep Sea Fisherman. 

When you think of. deep -sea fisher- 
ies you naturally think of Gloucester, 
Massachusetts, the- most important 
fishing port Gloucester is not very 
large, and does not grow fast. There- 
fore the people say that Gloucester 
hadn't eonugh to her credit to cele- 
brate her three hundredth anniver- 
sary. How can it grow ? They hear 
of a bad night and one hundred seven- 
ty fisherman lost; anotherrbad night 
one hundred lost and so on. 

At Gloucester they have fishing ves- 
sel races. The old fishermen think 
the only good race they ever had was 
their first anniversary race. They do 
not like the international races.. But 
one v of these races they are proud of 
was in Nineteen Hundred Twenty-two 
when the "Henry Ford' 'beat the Can- 
adian ''Bluenose." 

At the ''Fishermen's Corner" most 
shippeks pick up their men. The 
skippers pick up their men. The ship- 



poems was issued in 1847 under the 
title of "Princess: A Medley." He pub- 
lished "In Memorian" in 1850. This 
was in memory of his friend, Arthur 
Henry Hallam who died a short time 
before. : The style of Tennyson is 
clear, his lines are often exquisitely 
beautiful, and their flow is easy and 
natural. Many of his writings have 
been translated into. German, French 
and Spanish. Among 'the well known 
productions from his pen are, "Charge 
of the Light Brigade", "Ode on the 
Death of the Duke of Welliagton," 
"Enoch Arden," "Idylls of the King," 
and many others. 

We &re reading "Enock Arden'* 
now, I - like if because it is in a story 
form. It is interesting although not 
exciting. 

John Jaranson, 7th grade. 



The Value of Time. 
Time is the most wonderful gift of 
life for it is upon time that other gifts 
depend. Many of Us waste our time 
not thirnong that every * moment 
counts. It does not mean that we 
shouldn't be idle some times because 



ahead but it uses its tail. Tie sperm 
whale| is attacked from behind and 
the right whale is attacked from the 
front. 

When a whale is spied out the nien 
take harpoons, get into the boats, and 
go after the whale. When they get 
close to it they throw the harpoons 
and' try to spear' it. When the whale is' 
speared he goes as fast as he can try- 
ing to tip the boats. Sometimes men 
are eaten by sharks which follow the 
whale because of the blood. 

When the men capture the whale, 
they tow it to the big ship and put it 
on a large raft Then they cut it in 
pieces and boil them to get the oil. 
They put the oil in barrels and store 
it in the bottom of the ship. It seems 
hard to believe that a man can stand 
the smell because a whaleship can be 
smelled about twenty miles off. Af- 
ter several whales are caught and the 
whale oil is obtained the men go back 
to port and sell the oil. '

go after them. The ship 
taken as close to the seals as possible, 
and then the men rush out and kill as 
many seals with bat and gaff as pos- 
sible. ; The seals are then skinned 
and taken to the ship over small ice 
cakes which is a very hard job. 

At the close of the first half of the 
season the bats and gaffs are put 
away and/ the guns taken out. When 
a herd is sighted the . men separate 
and surround them, and kill all they 
can. The. skins are taken and carried 
to the ship and packed away. The 
ship now has a large load and the 
space for the men is small.. There are 
many discomforts, for there' is blood; 
all over the ship and the oil of the fat 
of the seal has got into everything.- 
The men often go to bed with their

the ship being sunk by- ice. 'The

a holiday and all the people at port

work . shop. Some 20 years ago I 
needed to borrow wtenty-five dollars 
for eats. That was in\the good old 
golden days when it was "show me" 
if one wanted to borrow money. 
Well I told my story and put in all 
the heart throbs and rung in all- the 
sob stuff, and Prichard, he was cash- 
ier of the First National at that time, 
let me have it. I dont pretend to 
•say that it was good banking tactics 
and so fc due perhaps to the fact that 
I was. saved from going hungry I 
have always had a sort of a warm 
friendly feeling for Prichard, banks 
and the F. N. in particular, and while 
my business has been more of a 
bother to* the bank than otherwise, it 
has been a very great accommodation 
to'me. 

We have had some very bad bank 
failures and bank officials have come 
in for a goodly share of cussing. No 
doubt they are entitled to a good deal 
of it, due perhaps to being too opti- 
mistic and tender hearted. But in 
the final analysis, was it not because 
the farmers could not pay his obli- 
gations ? And why: was that he could 
not ? We have had-no crop failures. 
Such things don't happen in Penning- 
ton county. Perhaps it was because 
we bought what we couldn't afford. 
When one takes into consideration 
that more money is spent for autos,. 
oils, gas, auto repairs and licenses, to 
say nothing of the time spent in long 
drives looking for pleasure that we 
could perhaps get along without, than 
aTIjthe products of the- farm in Pen- 
nington County, is it anv wonder that 
banks fail? 

At this time we hear a great howl 
about farm relief. In our city a 
short time ago a meeting of a branch 
of the American Council of Agricul- 
ture wa s held and no doubt the farm- 
ers? ills were all diagnosed. The 
Farm Bureau has a remedy and ev- 
ery politician in Congress has a pet 
measure that will be a cure-all, and 
I expect that when our future con- 
gressman gets into actiorTlhat he will 
formulate a system or plan whereby 
farmers can sit on the verandas and 
watch the hired man work, but until 
that time comes I think we had bet- 
ter keep right on with our knittin* 
and milkin'. And while all this makes 
mighty fine political dope, most any- 
one can see that it dont' amount to 
a hill of beans. ." But" the- farmers 
must co-operate if they are to expect 
to get anywherer 

The craftsman laboring man knows 
what he wants for his labor and £f 
yjra won't pay him you don't get him, 
and I don't think the government' ever 
donated or helped in any way to or- 
ganize his union. And in the same 
way the farmer can say what he 
wants for his products and if they 
don't want to pay it thev don't get 
it. With Land O' Lakes butter sell- 
ing for around 60c a pound and the 
association obliged to go into the 
market and buy- back some of their 
own butter to supply the demand it 
ought to let "a little flicker of light 
into 'our beanery ofwhat co-operation 
is when it is "spelled with a capital 
"(?'. But you can't prosper if you 
spend more than you earn or mort- 
gage the future. Pav as you go and 
there would be no bank failures. 

I note with a little amusement that 



Ijpttr^of^ur; papers stress^the fact 
that this has been the banner year 
for road building, more than double 
that of 1920... Within a few miles -of 
Thief Hiver Falls more than $50,00$ 
has been spent Yes, we are mighty, 
proud of those magnificent, greats 
wide military roads like they bu2d : in' 
Germany.- In case of war a-regiment 
in platoon formation.. could march in 
the center, heavy artillery on one side 
and the officers could ride by in. their 
limousines at 90 per on the other side. 
They are a monument to the skill of 
the engineer. But in our great pride 
and joy for these roads, let u^ not 
forget our less fortunate people in 
Star, Hickory and many other parts 
of the county who are ; twenty miles 
from a gravel road. And let us not 
*e ungrateful to the powers that be 
for their almost superhuman efforts 
to keep the snow off the highways. 
Of course it costs like the dickens but 
these efforts make the roads utterly 
impassable and this enables us to 
stay at home and save our money. 

Yours truly, 

P. H. WEIGHT.

Firmer Resler Speaks 
From Experience 

Well known Minnesota man now fully recovered* Tells 
friends that Tanlac put him on his feet 
1 when all else failed 

Anton J. Refllar, R. F' D. 6, Owa- 
tonna, is widely known among Min- 
nesota farmers. Many of .these good 
friends were worried about his poor 
health and amazed at his quick and 
complete recovery. , 'Tor a year I 
suffered untold agonx»" be tells them. 
"3?he very odor of food sickened me 
and what little I could eat lay like a 
Btone in my stomach. 

"Every~morning I would rise with 
that awful pain inside me, and I had 
neither heart- nor strength for the 
day's work. The smallest job was a 
dreary drudge to me;then. I grew 
thin, weak and sallow, and returned 
to the house exhausted each evening. 
I ^erew discouraged and knew 1 
couldn't stand it much longer. 
t "Seeing what it had done for other 
sick folks, I gave Tanlac a trial and 
can truthfully say it save me relief 
from the^first. The awful weight and 
pains in my stomach soon disap- 
peared and my appetite came back. 
I was able to sleep naturally again 
for the first time in a year. Now I'm 
strong and well and go fhrough the 
hardest day's work with ease. Noth- 




, ing bothenr me now. Tanlac will al- 
ways have a warm place in my 
heart." 

What Tanlac did for Mr. Resler, it 
has done for many thousands of 
others. Over a hundred thousand 
grateful friends have written to tell 
us so. If you're in poor health, try

A Toboggan Accident. 
One morning brightland early I got 
up out of bed and found the ground 
was covered with snow. I thought to 
myself what fun we can have today. 
When I was dressed, ] I went down 
stairs to eat my breakfast. When I 
was through I put on my coat and hat. 
Then I went out of doors to play in 
the snow . A little later six of us 
girls got a big tobaggan- and went 
down to an icy hill. ' We all got on 
and went down. When we were about 
half way down we came 'to a big 
stump The sled tipped right over, 
and we went head over heels one 
right after the other |down the hill. 
The sled came tumbling behind. us; we 
went over many bumpis. We had plen- 
ty of bumps that day so we went 
home. We told our mothers about our 
toboggan accident.

The Seaplane Pilot. 

One of the most interesting jobs of 
the Naval Flying Corps of the United 
States is that of the seaplane pilot. 
Persons qualifying for this job must 
be machinists. They must have at 
have at least two years of service on 
some sea going vessel and they must 
also be recommended by some com- 
manding officer. After about a week 
of study, the students are allowed to 
take flights with some pilot . .They 
are given this experience so as to be- 
come accustomed %p the "air feel" and 
more familiar with the plane. 

The first thing a student is taught 
is to strap Mmself in. Then he is 
taught to look the plane over and tell' 
if any thing is wrong' with the engine 
or frame work. After weeks of train- 
ing the'seaplane pilot is allowed to 
handle the plane little by little imtil- 
he masters the steering part. Then 
he is allowed to run the nlane horizon- 
tally and to land it Next he takes 
the plane out by Mmself. After tWs 
he takes an examination. If he pass- 
es, he is given the right to take up 
more advanced Seaplaning. Sea- 



and nuts till we were sleepy. Every- 
body had to get up at five thirty, for 
there, is lots of work to do on .the 
farm. We left there Thursday, Janu- 
ary 6, and we got home the eighth. 
I sure enjoyed my vacation. •

in The Tribune last week including the 
reports of the secretary and treasur- 
er, and a talk by E. A. Hanson, dairy 
specialist. University Stale Farm, St.

ation on the excellent showing made 
last year, especially in the formation 
of the dozen cow-testing associations,

the i entire district. 

At the forenoon's session today of 
the state association Hon. . Jas. Soren- 
son, secretary of the Creariiery Op- j 
erators and Managers Association, St. 
Paul, pointed out thai there was no i 
danger of an overproduction of the 
doily industry in this country, giving 
figures -showing that the average con 
sumption of butter per capita in the 
United -States is only 17 pounds, even 
■with a doubling of the output in Min- 
nesota in the pp.st tw.-^ or thro? years. 
Carada consumes 27% pound per 
capita, with Australia a close second, 
trailed by New Zealand and 'Denmark 

all great butter countries. , When it 

comes to milk consumption ; the Uni- 
ted State-, is again way down. Swed- 
en consuming 70 gallons per capita, 
Denmark following closely; with 68 
gallons and Switzerland .with .66 gal- 
lons, this country being able to only , 
get. away with 42 gallons of milk per j 
ca>>ta. In the matter of cheese the : 
Umted States is far below- the other ! 
dairy countries, which are headed by ; 
Switzerland's consumption :pf 25% ' 
pounds per person. Holland- being 
second with 18 pounds* and; Denmark 
registering onlv 12'% pounds. The 
average for the United States is only ; 
3% pounds. I ;

danger of an overproduction of dairy 
products, especially milk, said. Chas. 
F. Collison agricultural' editor of the 
Minneapolis Tribune before -the state 
dairymen at the opening of the ses- 
sion this afternoon. He pointed out, 
however, the danger in not having a 
standardized grade of milk, day in 
anofday out every hour, and also: of 
butter" and cheese. These are prime 
requisites, he said. 

The speaker also re-iterated tbw 
statement made so often by those ap- 
pearing at this and previous dairy 
and alfalfa conventions here, that 
nowhere else* in the United States can 
-such wonderful fertility of soil # be 
found as in this immediate section, 
which, without any cost will produce 
grasses of all kinds especially clover 
and alfalfa, while Wisconsin for in T 
stance in many places requires an ex- 
penditure of about $12 per acre to get 
the same result. In no place in the 
country is more being done to devel- 
op, dairyinigf and the raising of alfal- 



business will. 



conclude the final pro- 



place each year, or rather, I believe 
in' crop rotation. I also spread ashes 
on omon rows and I have no trouble 
with worms then. 

I raise by own herbs, as parsley, 
thyme, sage. We .have a good'start 
in fruits and will say a large bed of 
strawberries is nice, but for a busy 
farmer or. farmer's wife a few rows 
cari be tended better and a good sized 
patch of raspberries, gooseberries and 
currants are as good and a lot less 
work. ~' 

Of both fruit and vegetables I can 
all I wish for, by the cold-pack 
method, and such crops as rutabagas, 
cabbage, mangels, carrots, etc., we 
store in a pit or cellar dug under the 
chicken house and keep out only 
enough for immediate use in the 
house. 

I always plant radish seed in onion 
and carrot rows so I can cultivate be- 
fore crops are up and not disturb the 
rows. A few rows of flowers in the 
vegetable garden make .work eaiser, 
I think, as they seem to smile at us 
whenever we look at them and v.c for- 
get our backaches. 

My' failures have been with the fol- 
lowing: Pumpkins grow to -vines and 
I seldom get as large pumpkins- as we 
used to years ago. The same is true 
with some of my tomato plants. They 
cover three to four rows . of other 



vegetables even though I give them 
an extra large space. 'I get loads of 
tomatoes, but they are late to -ipen' 
and some of my cucumbers turn yel- 
low and ripen when too small for 
pickling. Cauliflower grows jnicely, 
but has none or very small heads. 
' My motto is, "If at first you don't 
succeed, try again."— Mrs. J. A. G'.,

. We found the following interesting 
article in this week's issue of The 
Farmer of St. Paul; 

For Northern Minnesota. 

At one time or other I've raised 
nearly all vegetables found in catalogs 
and find that [we can raise all sorts 
here. Our soil is leaf-mold sand and 
clay mixed an'd a lot of manure added. 
Success with all sort's depends on the 
elbow grease used in preparing the 
soil, weeding J and cultivating, which 
must continue as long as one can get 
between the rows. ' , ,' -i ■ 

I prefer the following' sorts for 
h6th4 use: Yellow Bantam sweet corn, 
white navy beans, also black seeded 
beans to use ! for early eating and 
canning, the Hubbard squash and' also 
the kitchenette, ox heart-carrots, also 
Danvers, half long carrotsr hollow 
crown parsnips, early bull nose pep- 
pers, ground cherries, early breakfast 
radish also white icicle. . •• 

In onions I have good luck -with 
White and [ Yellow Globe, Red

onions or chives. Yellow, large smooth 
peas, curly leaved green lettuce, swede 
rutabagas and all season's cabbage

The quartet-century 1

tion of this Company is. 
reached thisyear. From 
an unpretentious start,, 
the Company's prog~ 
ress has been notable iai 
mercantile history. ! 
- ' ! 

This has not _ been,; 

simply because of its, 
remarkable growth, but 
more noticeably on ac-i 
count of the success its! 
many stores have at-] 
tained in giving a ser-| 
vice to the public that! 
has been idealized by! 
customers.- i 

> Through all the 25.J . 
years, the concern, ofj 
the Company hasjbeenj 
c h i e f 1 y in providing! 
high standard quality 
goods at lowest possible 
prices and safeguarding 
its customers so that 
this service might al- 
ways be enjoyed ' by 
them. 

Day after., day and 
year v - after year, the 
Company in every wayj 
has endeavored to serve' 
the public better than 
was expected. That it 
has succeeded in these 
endeavors is shown by! 
the fact that the-. com4 - 
bined sales of all its 
stores in 1926 were ap- 
proximately $25,0OO,t

Joe LaBoe Goes East For 
Huge Slosh Fund — Rumor 

Latest reports from Lamberts Drug 
Store headquarters of the La Boe for 
Senator campaign, indicate that the 

- candidacy of this local man is meeting 
with increased public favor, it being 
stated on reliable authority that two 
more voters have swung into line and 
that the support of a third citizen has 
been practically sewed up. Mr. La 
Boe slipped quietly out of town Satur- 
day night buying a ticket for St Paul, 
and it is rumored that he is negotiat- 
ing for a huge slush fund. It is 

- stated that lip remarked^o one of his 
supporters_who accompanied him to 
the train-^nat he would have notb*n<r 
to do with a campaign unless there 
was a sufficiently large slush fund to 
cause a good healthy scandal. The 
big plank in Mr. La Boie's nlatform 
is "economy", and to prove that he is 
sincere in this matter he__ refused to 
file for the primary fight, 

_ten dollars.

Penney Company Enjoys 
Good Business in 1926 

The J. iC. Penney company of this 
city enjoyed the best year's business 
in 1926 since the store was opened 
here four: years ago, according to H. 
E.~ Nelson, manager. This is one of 
the top stores in Minnesota, he said, 
business having more than doubled 
during the last four years. Mr. Nel- 
son -states that sales during 1926 
showed a- substantial increase over 
the year previous and that he is very 
optimistic: for the 1927 outlook.

ter century the organization has 
grown to a nation-wide institution of 
773 stores. Twenty-eight stores will

PENNINGTON COUNTY 



TfflE; CHURCHES 



VOTE MONDAY. 

On next Monday die voters ol this 
legislative district will be called on to 
select two of the four candidates for 
Senator. On the following Monday 
one of these two will be chosen to 
represent this district lin the upper 
house of the state legislature. In this 
primary fight it is very, likely that 
Mrs. O. A. Naplin, with the endorse- 
ment of the Farmer-Labor party lead- 
ers, will be one of the winners. -■ The 
real contest is actually between Pet- 
er Engelstad of Pennington County 
and Marius Waldal of Red Lake 
County. 

While there is no constitutional 
provision to that effect, yet there is 
an unwritten law, accepted in the 
past by the three counties of the dis- 
trict, that while Clearwater and Red 
Lake counties shall each have one of 
the two representatives from this dis- 
trict, Pennington county shall have 
the senatorship. At the present time 
each of the other counties has its rep- 
resentativeand Pennington is entitled 
to retain the senate seat and it is in- 
cumbent upon the Pennington county 
voters to stand by their \ traditional 
rights. i 

Peter Engelstad deserves the sup- 
port. of the Pennington County voters 
because he is a Pennington county 
farmer in the first place and in the 
second place because he is well quali- 
fied to represent the district. No far- 
mer in this county has been more ac- 
tive in co-operative and Community 
work than Mr. Engelstad. Having 
held offices for many years in his 
township and school district organi- 
sations and in co-operative creamery 
insurance and farm loan associations, 
he has become familiar byj first hand 
experience with the problems of the 
district. Stand by Pennington coun- 
ty in Monday's primary.

It Is Always The "Gentle" Bull. 
(Hutchinson Leader.) 

A story in the Thief River Falls 
Tribune last week told of the near 
fatality resulting when an enraged 
bull broke loose from his; moorings 
and attacked his owner^ Vernon Copp, 
a young dairyman living [near that 
city. According to the story the ani- 
mal had always been very 'gentle and 
bad never shown any signs sof vicious- 
*iess. 

The fact that Mr. Copp escaped 
wlui nuS life is miracufeus. Hardly a 
week passes by that we do hot read in 
some paper or other of an attack by 
a supposedly gentle bull, '■ frequently 
resulting in the death of the person 
attacked. When, oh when, are stock- 
men going to realize that a bull is apt 
to run riot at any time and that he is 
only safe when secured with a ring 
in his nose.

PUBLIC ;E0RBM -; 
Editor Tribune: " 

I seel by your paper last week that 
there is likely to be a candidate file 
for the (senatorship In the person of 
one Joe LaBoe. of our city. I do hot 
think we jshnuld -vote ':hlind ^on .any 
candidate | and knowing that this Joe 
LaBoe is ;an employee of one of our 
big corporations J '--would like to .ask 
him the [following questions ^nd a 
prompt, .straightforward -.answer, if 
any, would he appreciated. - 

In the £rst jilace Mr. LaBoe, how 
do yon stand an the price of turkeys? 
I am a member of the Ijeague .of Tur- 
key consumer^ and our membership is 
very 1 extensive. We axe interested in 
low priced tnrkeys. Do you pledge 
your support to low .prices to "the con- 
sumer on these hirds? In the second 
place, how do you stand on this snow ? 
It is veryiclear that we have too much 
snow. Onr roads are all full of snow. 
What have you got to say about this ? 
In the third place we hear much talk 
of Europeans not.oaying their dehts. 
Are yon in favor of Europeans .pay- 
ing their,' debts? Are you in favor of 
anyone paying their debts? If so, 
why? In the fourth place do you 
think the farmers of the northwest 
are justified in asking for relief, and 
who do you think they ought to ask? 
What should they ask for and why? 
In ths fifth place how d» you feel 
about crime? Are yon in favor of 
crime prevention, or not? Do you feel 
that we : should -take definite action 
to discourage" crime? 
;; Now M r « LaBoe, you answer these 
'questions! and: give the voters a chance 
to see where you stand. If you are 
right in these important matters you 
will find that the voters will be right, 
and if you decide to run in the finals 
on stickers we will stick with you: 
Yours truly,

We heard a man 
at a iumiture con- 
vention say . one 
time that he believ- 
ed furniture had a 
lot to do- with do- 
mestic happiness. - 
And we have often 
wondered if it's not 
true. This same man 
said that cheap fur- 
niture was a costly 
investment, "If . I 
were just married 
and was establish- 
ing a home, and my 
wife .and I were 
tempted, with what 
few funds we had, 

"to huy two cheap 
chairs, I believe I 
would suggest that 
we buy one good 
chair, and I'd sit on 
the floor until we 
could afford another 
good one!" 

Have you a nice li- 
brary table in your 
home? We have 

1 several here that 
would fit in with 
your house furnish- 
ings and add a touch 
of comfort and beau- 
ty to your home 
surroundings. 

Have you ever 
thought of it? Prac- 
tically every piece of 



furniture made to- 
day has one idea 
back of it — Comfort.- . 
True", there was nev- 
er; better looking 
furniture made than 
they are making 
now, but they are 
getting that beauty 
without -sacrificing 
the big idea, com- 
fort. We wish you'd 
keep that iri mind in 
looking around ' our 
store and see if it 
isn't right. 

\ You 4 can generally 
tell a married , man 
by the number of 
hands he uses on 
ihe steering wheeL 

!We know a man 
iri this ■ town who 
never laces his shoes 
clear up to the top. 
He always ties the 
bow about half way 
down.

district school,.there she entered the local High School at Thief River 
Sails. She also attended the Tdachers College. She taught in the rur- 
al schools of this state for nine years before she was married to Oscar 
A. Naplin in 1S19. Since that time she has resided at Thief River 
Falls" as the housewife and constant companion of the late senator 
whose every mood and mental process she had learned to know and 
understand and she took- an active interest in his progressive politi- 
cal policies. She can come closer, to. filling his place in the senate as 
he! would have filled it than anyone else ; could do. We elected Mr. 
' '. Naplin last fall with a substantialTmajority for this term and while his 
voice has been stilled by the grim' reaper yet in Mrs. Naplin we 
have an opportunity to continue the policies and principles that he 
represented -and that we voted for at that time. Let us not waver but

The men are Andrew "Old Hick-

most daring pirate in the history of

while Paramounfs screen {cavalier, 
Eicardo Cortez, portrays Laritte in a 
manner that leads one to believe he 
is actually seeing the ''daring, buc-

Florence Vidor's heart and 1 carries 
it far across the sea, one might 
rightfully think of him as la pirate

in Thief River Falls . It is quite like- 
ly that something definite in this line 
of endeavor will be initiated by the lo- 
cal club soon. Mr. Lorenz's talk was 
inspiring and formed a nucleus about 
which definite action can be taken.

Attempt Being Made" to 
Open Road to Crookston 

Intensive efforts are being, made 
this week to open state highway No. 
8 between this city and Crookston, ac- 
cording to W. B.: Sewell of Crookston. 
district maintenance superintendent, 
who spoke at the regular meeting of 
the Rotary club yesterday 'noon. Mr. 
Sewell showed pictures" of plows at 
work' with snow piled high' above the 
machine's, demonstrating that it was 
impossible to get through some of the 
drifts. An attempt is now being made, 
he said, to get through over ai differ- 
ent route which covers part' of the 
Gentilly road. ' . -. , 



At a joint meeting of the commit- 
tee of the Beltrami county board and 
the board of Pennington county held 
here Wednesday night, final arrange- 
mets satisfactory to the two counties 
and the! state highway department 
were made for the construction of a 
direct road to the Red Lake Narrows. 
It is thought that the work on this 
project will be .started this spring 1 and 
it is expected that it can be completed 
some time during the summer of 1928. 

This agreement marks the success- 
ful conclusion of several years of 
agitation by local individuals and or- 
ganizations and assures !this com- 
munity the completion of ; one of its 
pet projects, making, available, to this 
section of the state one of Minneso- 
ta's most beautiful natural play- 
grounds.' "*'' '\ x - 

'.The construction of this road is be- 
ing financed through the State High- 
way' department, $10,000 being alloca- 
ted to each county each year to defray 
the 1 expenses. For this year's con- 
struction; there will be $40,000 of these 
funds available, the allotment having 
been started last year. It is expect- 
ed that in the near future a road ex- 
tending south to the outlet will also 
be constructed, connecting it up with 
highways south of the lakes and giv- 
ing northern Beltrami county a road 
to Bemidji on the west side of the 
lakes. It is probable that when such 
an addition is made the road from 
this city; east thru Goodrirge and. on 
to Bemidji will be "declared a trunk 
highway.; 

' The committee from Beltrami coun- 
ty were commissioners James F. Hay- 
es and E. E. Schulke, representing the 
county, and H. M. Clark of the Be- 
midji Civic Commerce Association, re- 
presenting the city of Bemidji.

A local man who probably knows 
whereof he speaks, is of the opinion 
that trees-grown in the protection of 
a forest do not develop the resistance 
that a tree does that is isolated. Re- 
move the protection from one of the 
forest trees, he said, andj in all pro- 
bability it will go down : under the 
first heavy wind, while the mere fact 
that the lone tree is standing is proof 
of its strength. j 

We were not particularly interest- 
• ed in the statement V farjas trees are 
concerned but it did strike us that 
what was said about trejes applies with 
equal force and truth to men. The 
youth who has hardship thrust upon 
him perhaps has less chance to sur- 
vive but he has a far greater oppor- 
tunity to succeed than the youth who 
knows no hardship.

ing the liquidation of a closed bank, 
reports should be published from time 
to time iii order that the depositors 
who are the real owners of its assets, 
may know What is being done with 
their property. Much discontent could 
be averted if provision were made for 
more publicity." Nearly two years 
ago the Capitol National Bank of St. 
Paul closed its doors owing thousands 
of depositors. During all this inter- 
vening period these depositors have 
been kept! in ignorance; of when they 
ifiight receive dividends or what was 
being accomplished in the way of 
liquidation. It was the general ex- 
pressed opinion when the bank closed 
it would pay one hundred per cent on 
the dollar. But considerable of its 
assets are in Montana and North Da- 
kota farms which all realize will not 
be readily turned into '. cash. Some 
sort of published statement, however, 
would go a long way in satisfying, the 
depositors. It is being kept in ignor- 
ance of what the bank is doing to 
settle accounts that makes depositors 
suspicious.-^Mapleton Enterprise. 



DE-BUNKING TEXT BOOKS 
The Truman Tribune^ contained 
the following editorial which is inter- 
esting because it calls attention to an 
interesting weakness of human nature. 
There is no question but.: what the 
text books of a nation are biased y in 
favor of that particular nation. As 
long however as text; books 'are writ- 
ten by human beings they will be 
biased and better that \v6 be favored 
than that the true light of our nation- 
al glory be dimmed; It is a problem 
of approaching the facts as nearly as 
possible. / 

"Lieutenant/ Colonel Thomas J. 
Dickson, senior, senior chaplain of the 
A. E .P. in' France, recently inspected 
52 American text books containing- ac- 
counts^ the World War/ practically 
all of '-vvhicih he denounces; are givnig 
"distorted, ridiculous, absurd and stu- 
pid" ideas of our part in that strug- 
gle. 

"In these books our childen are 
taught that the United States soldiers 
won the war, and the impression is 
given that they were superior to all 
other fighting men engaged. Such 
pretentions, he says, unless corrected 
doom us to become the laughing stock 
of the world.- ' 

"We have a recbr dany nation can 
be proud of," Colonel Dickenson says, 
"and we don't need to exaggerate 
what we did or belittle the others — 
not even the Germans." 

"Unfortunately, writers of history 
text books write them primarily to 
sell, and they appear to think, per- 
haps correctly, that the greater the 
appeal to national vanity (the better 
chance the books will have to be 
adopted for school use. Hence many 
of these text books give the impres- 
sion that every American general was 
a modern Alexander and every soldier 
another Arnold Winkelried. 

"The truth is that while American 
■soldiers have always given Ja good ac- 
count of themselves, in battle they 
have, not been greatly different from 
other sooldiers, all circumstances con- 
sidered. When properly trained and 
equipped, the' American soldier is the 
equal of any in the world,( and su- 
perior to many. Without such train- 
ing and equipment he is at a decided 
disadvantage, as., our own 1 officers 
freely admit. ] 

"Much that passes for ; American i 
history is as apocryphal as the story

ONE DEATH FOR 1.450 

CARS IN MINNESOTA 

Minnesota has one "automobile 
death" for every 1,450 cars registered, 
in 1925,- according to statistics com- 
piled by the National Conference on 
Street and Highway ^Safety. Only 
five states, Iowa, North Dakota, Ne- 
braska, Kansas and Colorado had a 
better record. Iowa had only one 
death for every 2,190 cars. The aver- 
age for the nation was one death for 
D23 cars. Florida had a death for 
every 697 cars and New York- one 
for every 731 cars. 

The large cities showed- a higher 
ratio of deaths than the smaller cities 
and rural districts. This accounts in 
part for the J^gher proportion of ac- 
cidents in tHqKastem states. Minne- 
sota's death rate, however, was lower 
in 1925 than in 1924, there being 14.5 
for every 100,000 population in 1924 
and 13.8 in 1925. 

The Minnesota Highway depart- 
ment has made safety the first con- 
sideration, both in its construction 
and maintenance programs, by elimin- 
ating grade crossings, sharp turns 
and other hazards and marking all 
dangerous places. This has undoubt- 
edly contributed to the good record 
here. The. newspapers of Minnesota 
have been liberal in publishing safety 
propaganda and this also has helped 
materially 'in reducing the accident 
toll. . _ 

It is believed that 1926 figures 
when compiled will show a further 
reduction but the toll is still too 
heavy. Continued safety work, which 
includes further elimination of road 
hazards, better traffic laws and more 
uniform enforcement, and repeated 
warnings to both drivers and pedes- 
trians to be cautious, are needed to 
bring about a further reduction in 
fatal accidents.

Minnesota leads all the states in tile 
number of active co-operative market- 
ing associations and in the number of 
members of such associations. It is 
second only to California in the mat- 
ter of volume of business as measured 
in dollars and cents. 

The foregoing information is sum- 
marized from an article appearing) in 
Agricultural Co-operation, a publica- 
tion of the division of marketing at 
Washington. Sixty per cent of co- op- 
erative agricultural marketing since 
1916 has centered ill ten states, says 
the same authority. These states in 
the order of their relative importance 
are Minnesota,. Iowa, Wisconsin, Illi- 
nois, I California, Kansas, Nebraska, 
North Dakota, Michigan, and New 
York.' Almost one-half of the total 
membership of co-operatives is to be 
found in these states. 

In a 10-year period ending with 
1925 !the co-operatives of •California 
are estimated to have handled a total 
business of one billion and 700 million 
dollars. The Minnesota total for the 
same; time was slightly more than one 
billion and 400 million dollars. The 
grand aggregate for the same time 
was slightly more than one billion and 
400 million dollars. The grand aggre- 
gate for the 10 states for that decade 
was nine billions of dollars.

happy at 71. For two years her health was shattered. 
Now feels like 40 and credits Tanlac with rapid recovery 




Mrs. Spencer is frankly outspoken ' 
about her experience. In her comfort-

she made this statement: '< 

"For tWo years I was in a rundown 
condition due to gas and acid stom- 
ach. Food lay like leactin the pit of 
my stomach and I of ten f astedawhole

followed even the^lghtest meaL In 
addition to constipation, ahd bilious^ 
ness, my nerves were qp unstrung that 
sleep was impossible.; Many a night 
-I've paced up and down my bedroom, 
tortured byimifelikeistomach pains. 
Unable to do my Housework or to go 
out like other folks, I grew tired of life 
anddidn'toarewhetherllivedornot. 

"One day I read about a neighbor 
who overcame similar conditions with 
the aid of Tanl&eso Iwent down and 
asked him about itr-Ho stated em- 
phatically that Tanlac bad saved his 
life and urged.me to try it. On the 
way home I bought three bottles and '

Conservation of Wild Animal Life. ' 

The question of conservation of wild 
animal life in our country is one of 
the things that we should look after. 
Long- time ago our fields and forests 
were filled with wild animals, but now 
there are very few. When the white 
men came with firearms, many of the 
buffalos, were killed. The elk and an- 
telope were killed for food and some- 
times killed for their -branching ang- 
lers. There were also many birds that 
were killed. Without the birds, in- 
sects have increased enormously and 
orchards and forests have been laid to 
wasts to an alarming extent.

Grace Darling, 

Grace Darling was born 1 November 
s24, 1815, in a small town i 
eastern coast of England.; 
the seventh child of the family. Her 
grandfather had been thej keeper of 
the light house on one of jthe Farme 
Islands. Grace's father succe;ded him, 
but soon they moved to ' ; a different 
island. ! 

There are about twenty-five islands 
at low tide. They are in a lonely, deso- 
hite place. Here Grace Darling was 
brought up to womanhood. |Her father 
taught her to read and write. Living 
in this lonely place Grace h id grown 
self controlling and : brave. Her mother 
and father told her stories about ship- 
wrecks and how the passengers strug- 
gled to live or get ashore. ! 

In the year 1838 the . Forf arshine 
sailed from England, to go to Ire- 
. land. It was but two year 5 old but 
the boilers were in bad shape. Toward 
night the words went from . mouth to 
mouth that the leak in the I oiler was 
growing larger. Very soon a storm 
broke out.- People crowded 1 he decks. 
The wind was master. It \vt s tossing 
the ship nearer and nearer ;he rocky 
coast of the Farme Island. At last 
they could see a large rock ahead of 
them. The bow struck the. reck, shak- 
ing the whole ship. On the ship was 
a mother with two children, me 8 and 
one 12. The waves rolled over them, 
tearing their clothing. The children 
were soon dead. The crew, trying to 
save themselves,- had left tht boat. . 

In the morning the Darling family 
looked through their field glasses try- 
ing to see if any ship had be m wreck- 
ed. Grace saw the Forfarshine and 
the people that were left. She begged 
her father to go with her.- Mrs. Darl- 
ling stood upon a rock watching them 
go and she called after them, "Grace," 
if your father is lost I shall blame 
you." When they reached [the "ship 
they found the mother and after care- 
ful treatment they restored I her back 
to life. Grace and her father put the 
people in the boat and brought them 
to the lighthouse. 

The crew had been found 
land. Of the sixty-thiee people only 
nineteen were alive. News of Grace' 
deed -soon reached England 
world. A gold medal was 
her for bravery. 

An illness soon overtook 
she was taken to England 
ments, but nothing could help her -so 
she was taken back to thell ghthouse 
She died at the age of Twqnty-six. 
Helen Wassgren, 7th grade 



Ambition. 

The word '-'ambition" means seek- 
ing or reaching' for a higher standard 
in life." i 

How many develop our ambition?, 
To begin right now developing it, we 
must work toward regular and punc- 
tual attendance! in school so we may 
be sure we bbtaiR-everything. there is 
to obtain. But, when we are at 
school, we acquire only half of what 
we are seeking, unless we give especi- 
al attention 1 to what is being said and 
done. Let us follow the words of 
Lincoln "I will study and some day 
my chance will : come" and also of 
Franklin, "Lose no time, be always 
employed in something useful toward 
ambition, cut off all unnecessary ac- 
tions." n 

Let us so strive to have and develop 
out ambition as to have people in lat- 
er years, proudly affirm, "I went to 
school with him" or "she was my 
classmate."

How Regular Attendance at School 
Promotes Good Work. 

Some pupils find it hard to attend 
school regularly. With" some it ii 
either an imaginery headache or tooth- 
ache while others complain i of severe 
pains that would hinder them from 
walking the distance to and from 
school. Usually most any pupil,-but 
not all, jumps at an opportunity that 
will result in keeping him from school. 
Such people consist mostly of the class 
that expect. "something for nothing" 
in other words, good marks for 
little work that is poorly done. It is 
only the people" that belong to the "I 
don't care" class that practice such 
habits . 

If pupils would attend school reg- 
ularly, get his assignments, study as 
hard as he;cani he would accomplish 
great deal more than the one that 
stays out off and on and seldom works- 
Regular attendance is a great prob- 
lem in school life. It counts a great 
deal in the progress one makes. It 
helps you to do your work systema- 
tically and better als to get you more 
interested in it, If you would attend 
school regularly your school work 
would be more' of a pleasure than a 
burden for you can follow up with your 
classmates and enjoy your work with 
them. Otherwise you might miss out 
on the good times they might have 
unexpectedly, that go along with all 
work, and no one wants to do that. 
Let's attend school regularly!

T. A. Erickson, boys and girls club

How Attention Promotes Good Work. 

Few pupils realize the important 
part attention plays in promoting 
school work. Perhaps the most im- 
portant fact to the pupil is that a 
mark is received for it. Not that one 
is marked for attention alone, but it 
is considered in average the pupils de- 
portment and application. If a B plus 
is a B and a B a B minus, why not 
stop to think about attention, before 
broadcasting a made up story, about 
the teachers' unfairness? Most pupils 
think that. if they have their lessons 
fairly well each day, that ought to 
bring them a good mark. If one is 
sure that he pays attention, that is, 
listens to what is being said and done, 
he will not fail to get all of his as- 
signments,, and will hot come to class 
with his map colored instead of plain. 
If he pays attention he will save the 
valuable time of pupil and teachers 
in this way; when he was visiting 
with his boy friend across the aisle, 
the teacher gave the assignment. He 
did not hear it, -and during study 
period must disturb the teacher to 
find out what it was. If he does not 
pay attention, ;he wilj. probably lose 
ten or twelve points on his test, be- 
cause, when he had been fooling with 
something.Ta recitation had been made 
on what he had lost. If he does not 
pay attention he will draw the inter- 
est of pupils' around him, and all will 
make a failure.- Therefore, by paying 
attention, he will raise his mark, get 
all assignments perfectly, and help 
his friends' to clo their best.

the eighteenth amendment. The 
eighteenth amendment prohibits the 
manufacture, ' or transportation 
in intoxicating liquors. 'The Congress 
and the several statea shall have con- 
current power to enforce this article 
by appropriate legislation." Congress 
adapted and ratified the amelfilment 
January 16, 1919 and it became a part 
of the Constitution in 1920. 

The amendment was greatly 
brought about by the Woman's Chris-, 
tion Temperance Union. First we 
must know what this society is. We 
are all, with a few exceptions, famil- 
iar with the name Frances WSIiard. 
She was born in 1839 and she died in 
1898. In the year 1869 .she became 
professor of aesthetics in Northwest- 
ern University, In the year 1874 she 
resigned to become secretary of the 
Woman's Christian Temperance 
Union of which in 1879 she became 
president. She traveled extensively 
and lectured on -the evils of intemper- 
ance. For ten years, Miss Willard 
-moke on an average of four, hundred 
tunes a year. She took a leading part 
in the organization of the World's 
.Christian Temperance Union and in 
the year 1888 became its president. 
From 1892 to 1898 she was editor in 
chief of the Union Signal, the official 
organ of the temperance movement. A 
marble -statute of Miss Willard has 
been presented to the nation by the 
state of Illinois. 

Among the many benefits of pro- 
hibition is the benefit to the children 
oi the nation, especially to the famili- 
es for education have been possible 
since prohibition came into effect. The 
mothers are no longer forced to leave 
the house to work, in order to provide 
food for the family. Older boys a$d 
girls of these families. are now seek- 
ing higher, educations because then- 
earnings are no longer ' needed at 
home. ' . ; 

Victory Day was celebrated Janu- 
ary 18, in Thief River Falls. A-ban- 
quet was given by the Woman's Chris- 
tian Temperance Union of this city. 
After the dinner an interesting pro- 
gram was given. • .

The Forest Ranger. 
The United States has within its 
borders more than one hundred great : 
national forests and each one has its 
body of forest rangers. The work of 
the forest rangers is to guardand pro- 
tect the forest. From .sunrise to sun- 
set he or his assistants keep watch in 
a high ! observatory to discover the 
first sign of fire. If he sees a a column 
of .emojnrfn the distance, he locates 
the fiprft on the map as near as he 
can and then telephones to other ran- 
gers in the vicinity. They go over to 
the place where the fire is and fight 
it for hours^and sometimes for days 
and nights. When the forest rang- 
er is not fighting fires, he is by no 
means idle. He builds roads and 
keeps a lookout for poachers who may 
attempt, to steal Uncle Sam's timber.

years. At the age of nine, he came 
home to work on 'his father's farm. 
When he was thirteen years he did a 
man!s job^ and -when he was 1 sixteen 
he was his father's best helper. At 
this time he yjent to schopl^pmy a few. 
weeks at a time, all the time making 
out and. writing poems. He wrote 
mostly about common things', includ- 
ing" plants, flowers, animals and com- 
mon people. ' ! 

Finally he became discouraged with 
this kind of work, so he .decided to 
go to the West Indies. In order to get 
money for fare, he had some of his 
poems printed and as a result -he 
*iot only got enough moneyj but also 
got t Edinburgh instead. jHere he. 
w.as invited to parties and had a good 
time. He got a job as tax collector and 
rode from town to' town. While he had 
this job he fell in with bad! company 
and lost his health. He died at Dum-

seven, j

Forest Rangers of Bemidji. 

When we went to Bemidji we pass-

Tardiness at School ^Interferes With 
Progress. 

Tardiness is an inexcusable trait in 
anyone. It is one of the worst habits 
we can form. ; Tardiness in school 
espically is unnecessary. When some 
■students always get their work in on 
time and are never late to school there 
is na reason why every one shouldn't 
be the same. Habitual tardiness hin- 
ders progress. If these habits are not 
broken in school it will be doubly hard 
t get rid of them later. The man who 
is applying! for a job, who gets there 
first, will be more apt to g*t th* posi- 
tion than the man who is itraggliag 
along ten or fifteen minutes late. Any 
person who ii tardy all tfc* turn 



smoke was discovered they would wire 
to other towers. Then they ran all 
over with wet bags. After the fire 
they cooked their food, made bags to 
fight with, made suits to use, and 
trained as much as they could for the 
next fire. Now I think you know 
what it is to be a forest fire fighter 
in Bemidji.

Why China Has Been a Backward r - 
Country. 

There are many reasons why China 
has been a backward country. China 
has been a backward country because 
they follow their ancestors and think 
that they cannot do anything else but 
what their ancestors did or the evil 
spirits will harm them. Another is 
on account of their religion. The peo- 
ple of China think that if they get in 
machinery to work with and make it 
go better and quicker some people will 
be out of work. The Chinese think 
that there are many evil spirits which 
will cause them trouble if they dis- 
obey them. For a good many years 
the Chinese closed their ports to all 
nations no nation could come in and 
trade with them. B> doing this China 
has been kept from learning the ways 
of other countries. These are some of 
the reasons why China has been a 
backward country.

Why Africa Has Been Unexplored 
For So Lorig. 
Some people wonder why Africa has 
not been explored .until recent times 
since it is near the densely populated 
continent of Europe. There are many 
reasons for^this. If. a man tried to" 
explore Africa he would be met by al- 
most impossible barriers. He would 
probably die from the fever. which is 
common on that coast... If he went up 
the river the explorer would soon 
come to great waterfalls and rapids 
The great Sarah waterfalls and rap-

are great jungles in the part that is 
along the equator which keeps out

kinds of wild animals and poisonous 
insects which kill many people every 
year. The land of. Africa has many 
mountains which stop many people.

of social enterprises, which divert the 
attention of the studetns from study 
and real educational work, rather than 
promoting the same. Years ago the 
University had a reputation as an 
educational institution. Now its press 
agents and the newspapers generally 
feature it a s an amusement enterprise 
and the educational feature seems to 
be almost entirely lost to sight. In- 
stead of trying to train the pupils in 
the sciences and branches of know- 
ledge y which will best enable them to 
make a living and- promoting the 
economic prosperity of the state, the 
energies and enthusiasm seems to be 
expended in snake dances and shout- 
ing "Rah," "Rah", "Rah^ at the ball 
games and the development of a so- 
cial club where the young people of 
the Twin Cities can-find a pleasant 
place of recreation at the expense of 
the state. Inasamuch as the Twin 
Cities is only one-third of the state 
and their percentage of attendance is 
approximately two-thirds, while the 
burden of taxation falls most heavily 
upon the farming communities, it is 
easily seen where the inequality of the 
situation exists. 

I Another feature, which is a matter 
I of serious importance, is that the pres-

For 

State Senator 

Election, Monday, Feb. 7 




We wish to express our appreciation of the 
spirit of fair play displayed by the voters of this 
district at the Primary election last Monday. The 
long established custom of this district, that each 
county should be entitled to representation in the 
legislature, was not violated. Clearwater county 
has representative W. E. Day and Eed Lake coun- 
ty has representative J. 0. Melby, while Penning- 
ton county hadj the late Senator O.A. Naplin. 
About two thirds of the voters. expressed a desire 
for Senatorial candidate from Pennington county. 
We believe that the voters will repeat the perfor- 
mance next Monday at the Special election and . 
confljm the old unwritten law. Vote for Laura 
E. Naplin, the candidate for senator from Pen- 
nington county She will fill the pace as her hus-

Yes. I think the fanrjers of the 
Northwest are justified :n asking re- 
lief. Whom should they a|k adn what ? 
They should ask me, their senator- 
elect, to introduce a bill in the legis- 
lataure making it unlawful and pun-

you for awhile. 

Yes, I believe we should take defin- 
ite action to prevent crime and think 
the first steps towards this end are as 
follows: 

Make it unlawful for auto dealers 
to "treat" their prospects to anything 
stronger than coffee prior to making 
a deal. Many people wl o now drive 
around in small, tinny, n )isy gas wa- 
gons were tricked into Snaking the 
purchase; The purchase of good 
strong, quiet-running motor cars 
should be encouraged: 

Better referees should be demand- 
ed; I can't conceive of a more agra- 
vating crime than to allow a poor re- 
feree to' spoil an otherwise enjoyable 
evening for basketball fans. 

I believe it should be made unlaw- 
fu! for a physican to operate for ap- 
pendicitis more than three times 
the same patient. 

I believe loafing with Its upsophis 
located prating and babbling about 
everyone else's business s lould be di: 
couraged.

Vol. 1 



Put a i couple of 
boards across a pair 
of wooden horses 
arid place before it 
a pine bench. You 
have a dining equip- 
ment that will serve 
the purpose— but do 
your tastes serve 
such a layout? They 
do not! As a good 
American citizen, 
you want something 
more than mere 
utility. You want 
beauty in your fur- 
niture' and artistry. 
And right" here is 
where this store can 
serve you. We have 
the furniture that 
does its !full duty, 
and at the same 
time adds every- 
thing to 'the attrac- 
tiveness j of your 
home. 



If you have read 
the Bible, and we 
hope you' have — you 
have probably notic- 
ed where Paul once 



remarked, "I suffer 
not a woman to 
teach nor to usurp 
authority over the 
man, but to be in 
silence." But we've 
noticed that Paul's 
idea certainly does 
not work out -when 
a man and his wife 
come in tiPlook at 
furniture. The lady 
"usually . does the 
selecting, and the 
man usually says 
"That's .all right 
with me if it suits 
you." 

In oar display 
window we are dis- 
playing this week a! 
parlor suite that we

think is good look- 
ing. That is expres- 
ing it very mildly, 
but we like to be " 
conservative. We 
have heard enthusi- 
astic comments from 
others about this 
.particular suite that 
we don't use. t You 
might think w e were 
exaggerating. 

Do you realize that 
1927 is oneltwelfth 
gone? 

A man who brings 
up seven or eight 
children these days 
deserves a lot of 
credit. In fact, he 
can't get along with- 
out it 



"Papa, the, preach- 
er was here to lunch

byjthe Reverend John Duncan. 

The coldest time of the day: or night

Seed Grains Need

A. H. Larson seed analyst 
versity Farm, warns farmers 1 o be on 
their guard against low germinating 
seed wheat and oats when 
time rolls around again. The .safe plan, 
he says, is to. make sure of an ade- 
quate supply of good. seed ear y. 

This same message is being 
by the Better Seed Special 
which last Monday began 
weeks tour of northwestern Minneso- 
ta.'-- 

Almost continuous rains 
harvest and later last season d imaged 
■wheat 'and oats in shock. Seed cures 
best when the grain i ; s stacked, but 
many farmers do not make a practice 
of stacking and those who do found it i 
difficult to get their grain 
between showers. ' 

Agricultural agents in seveial Min- 
nesota counties foresee a local seed 
com shortage and are advisin 
ers to make tests themselves

Alfalfa Gain Seen:

farm- 

or to 

testing 

Univer- 



That the hay shortage now felt in 
most parts of Minnesota will -stimu- 
late a further increase in the sowing 
of alfalfa and sweetclover is evident 
from the reports of county agents re- 
ceived at the 1 extension division head- 
quarters at Universtiy Farm. -"Every 
farmer, with some alfalfa'' is. a slogan 
proposed in Carver county. Extension 
and farm bureau people in many other 
counties are urging that more atten- 
tion be pail to this crop and especial- 
ly to the character of the seed planted 
the coming season. The editor of the 
New Richland, Waseca county, Star, 
says the increase of the alfalfa acre- 
age in his county- — from 41 acres in 
1919 to approximately 11 000 at this 
time — "has been ;an outstanding fac- 
tor in promoting 'a profitable dairy in 
dustry and maintaining. and enriching 
the soil." 



An interesting and! diversified mode 
for the New! Spring jSeason has been 
decreed by Dame Fashion. Among the 
high lights oi the new styles in dress- 
es are— Collarless Necklines, Compose 
Coloring, Jack-O'-Lantern Sleeves, 
Ensemble arid Bolero's. 

There is no outstanding color in 
dresses. Shades that are important in 
elude, Monkey Skin, Mother Goose, 
Queen Blue,! Grecian 1 Roe: Navy and 
Black are also goodj as is the com- 
bination of Black and White. 

Georgette jand Flat Crepe are the 
outstanding materials, with a few Sa- 
tins still being shown. Light weight 
Woolen Fabrics' are favored for sport 
garments. 

Spring Coats are elaborately fur 
trimmed. Sport model coats are made 
up in mannish Novelty cloth including 
mixtures, checks and plaids; Reversi- 
ble sports coats are also shown 

Dress coats for Spring include coats 
made of finer fabrics, such as Twills: 
Charmeen, Whip Cords, ' Natural and 
Colored Rashas, Satin and Corded 
silks, lined with Rasha or silk Crepe 
de Chine. 

Spring Sport Suits for sport wear 
are being shown in novelty tweeds in 
Tans and Grey, twills in Navy Blue 
in mannish styles. Both single and 
double breasted styles are featured. 

Spring Fabrics emphasize small 
figures in both silks and cotton.' Sport 
silks are the big thing for spring and 
summer. This will- be ' decidedly a 
print season iwith small -figures, floral 
designs and j 6malL set patterns, in 
strong contrast to the large, gaudy 
figures shown last season. Spring 
fabrics possess new coloring but are' 
less glaring ; than last season. English' 
Prints, Figured Flaxdn, Ginghams, 
and Celanese are very much in de- 
mand. ! ' ! 

The new j Spring.. Eeady-to-Wear, 
Dry Goods and Novelties are arriving 
daily. Mrs. H. M. Olson, who purchas- 
ed the spring merchandise while on a 
buying trip in the East recently, . in- 
vites everyone to come to the 6en 
Mercantile Store and enjoythe Spring 
spirit. ! 



.Registration for the winter -quarter 
of the current fiscal year in the Min- 
nesota College of Agriculture, -Fores- 
try and Home Economics show a gain 
over the corresponding quarter a year 
ago. Of the three .sections forestry 
has made the greatest increase, about 
23 per cent. The enrollment in agri- 
culture the first day . of the present 
quarter was 187, in forestry, 179, and 
in home economics 344. a total of 710. 
There are: 362 men and 348 women! 
The attendance has not yet reached 
the figures of the prosperous farm 
years immediately followine the war, 
but the trend indicates that it is grad- 
ually coming-back. . ■ 



Attended Buying Convention. 
Mr. and Mrs. Haaken Olson -of the 
Oen Mercantile Co. retured last week 
from their spring buying trip. At 
Chicago they attended the convention 
of j the large buying association of ( 
which the Oen store is a member.' 
They also spent several days ,at Si.

Thirty-two n£w improved fruits

breeding farm are described a; id m&st 
of them pictured in Bulletin 230 pre- 
pared by W. H. Alderman chief of the

the Minnesota Experiment Station. 
These varieties, which have been, giv- 
en names and introduced amo lg fruit 
growers, include 14 kinds of plums, 
three plum-cherry hybrids, iour ap- 
ples -seven strawberries one red rasp- 
berry, one goosebery and twt 
mentals. 

"Many of these varieties dre rap- 
idly becoming accepted as standards 
in. this and adjoininig states, and the 
piuins are being planted on a ( ommer 
ciul scale," says the bulleti i. "The 
wealth accruing to the state each 
yeai* from the products of these 32 
-varieties far exceed the total colt of 
all the state-supported friut iireeding 
experiments since the estab ishment 
of'the first fruit breeding fjarm

If they were all under

significant by compari-

Their selective and 
buying power would be 
no greater; the indi-

benefit no more. 

But they are under 
773 roofs, serving as 
many communities.

"Her Honor' the Governor" deals' 
with the place of the American w<h

the. relationship between the mater- 
nal" instinct and politic al duty. The 
manner in ^rhich this relationship was 
depicted on the scree i called forth

Ross viewed "Her Hoi .or the Gover-

picture does, is a wortiy one. 

Not the least fascin:ting part of 
"Her Honor the Govenor," is that 
which deals with the voman' Gover-

The problem of the more economicrc' 
production of better cronS wereillu?. 
trated by exhibits and discussed from 
the platform in - connection with the 
Better Seed Special Train which visits 
ed Thief River Falls last Friday. 
The train arrived earlier than expect- 
ed and upset somewhat the plans for 
its reception. As a result, the pro- 
gram for the evening was changed. 
The visiting farmers went at once to 
the hall of the Sons of Norway. 'for the 
program of talks and after the pro- 
gram at; the hall, they visited the ex- 
hibits on board, the train . 

R. jj. Lund, vice president of ' the 
Commercial club, in the absence of 
Dr. H. W. Froehlich,' called the meet- 
ing to order, introducing T. J: Stitts 
of the extension division of. the Min- 
nesota College of Agriculture and di-« 
rector of the agricultural specialists 
with the train. Mr. Stitts introduced, 
among other speakers, H. S. Funston, 
land; commissioner of the Sbo railroad. 
Mr. ( Funston very briefly outlined the 
reasons why the railroads were opera- 
ting! the better seed train and why 
they were interested in agriculture. 
The! interests of the railroads andthe 
farmers, he said, were mutual; rail- 
road prosperity depended upon agri- 
cultural prosperity; the railroads, 
therefore, were vitally interested in 
the ^success of the farmer. 

The 'two exhibit cars were the fea- 
tures of the train of special interest 
tp visiting farmers. In the first car 
were displays emphasizing the great 
losses suffered by farmers in growing 
dockage; the importance of seed con- 
trol through the use of pure seeds, 
rjwi>. rotation and careful cultivation; 
■the;- great importance of eliminating 
grain -smuts and flax wilt by seed 
treatment, or the selection of disease 
resistant varieties, and' the need of 
growing crop varieties which have 
been tested and proved for use under 
Minnesota conditions, with special at- 
tention to seed testing. 

In the second car- was an exhibit 
of grain cleaning and seed treating 
machinery of modern type, adapted 
to the special needs of the various 
crops. 

The general program of talks which 
was a feature of each stop; included a 
discussion of Mr. Stitts, on the farm 
outlook for 1927. 

Mr. Stitts !said that, farmers who 
maintain their com acreage would get 
the full benefit of favorable corn years 
when they... come, and expressed the 
belief that another poor corn'-^year, 
such as the farmers have known since 
1924, was hardly likely this year. The 
maintenance of the corn acreage was, 
therefore, advised. 

The winter wheat acreage of the 
United States was increased about 
5 per cent last fall, and, in planning 
their wheat acreage, farmers in the 
spring wheat belt were,| therefore, 
advised not to expand their wheat 
.acreage to any considerable extent, 
as |i general expansion of the wheat 
area of the country would' tend to de- 
press pricestv. Flax would stand some 
expansion, m ':Mr. Stitt's' opinion. 
Ho^b^er,'^ie argued against a large 
exyahsronj^cause this would have a ! 
tendency to^mt the flax/ crop on an 
export basis^-svhich would mean -di- 
minished returns. / - 

The odds were somewhat against 
continued high prices /for potatoes. 
Thp short crops of 1925Jand 1926 were 
hardly likely to be followed by a 
third short crop, said Mr. Stitts. 

Dairy production on! the present 
scale, it was felt, would continue to 
bring satisfactory results. While hog 
prices seenvto have reached their 
peak, Mr. Stitts thought another crop, 
especially if marketed" early, would 
bring satisfactory returns. The sheep 
industry offered some 'possibilities of 
expansion fti the way of small flocks 
on | the average -farm. . Poultry was 
likely to continue'- popular, because of 
prevailing prices. 

The tremendous problem of dock- 
age was presented, by R. H. Black of 
the United States department 1 of agri- 
culture. Mr. Black said that the 21 
counties; through which the train is 
being operated, last year produced in 
wheat and flax alone more than 2,000. 
000 bushels of dockage, at: a cost of 
about $4,000,000. An exhibit in one 
of ;the cars, supporting Mr . Black's 
statement, showed that the annual 
dockage bill of the average farm in 
Minnesota was $264, jas against" $144 
property tax. The solution of this 
problem, Mr. Black said, lies in grain 
cleaning and seed treating; Penning- 
ton county laBt year produced in 
wheat and flax ,a5orie, 25.000 bushels 
of [dockage, at a cost of $60,000. 

The danger to farmers through the 
purchase of widely heralded crop var- 
ieties, promising: extraordinary re- 
turns, has been great. The Minnesota
